Reviews

My GO TO book for all things ADHD


"There is a plethora of literature on the important link between food and ADHD, but this is one is the best.
I have a 10 year old with ADHD & ODD; we regularly cook all the recipes and some have become firm family favourites - particularly the Snacks section.
Dr Gow writes with families in mind; in layman's terms she presents the Science and joins up the dots between brain health and nutrition.
Its our kitchen bible! Highly recommend for all families with non neurotypical children."

A smart read! Evidence-based nutrition written in an accessible way.

"I found this book very engaging, informative and accessible. The author's empathy, humour and personal experience of (her son's) ADHD provides a valuable guide to the condition, and how to best feed young brains.
Reading it, you feel you're not alone if your kid's got ADHD, which is invaluable! The nutritional evidence is great for general brain health of any age. A must have book..."
