Agreed! My child was diagnosed with ADHD because he was in and out of principals office in first grade. Since celiacs disease jumps from less than 1% of population to roughly 15-20% of the ADHD population (see the study http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/artic... ) and I have family members with gluten sensitivities, our family has removed gluten from our diet.

My child has been well-behaved since that one diet change. No medication has been required for him to stay out of trouble.

But telling a 6 year old that he can't have his favorite breakfast (pop tarts) or hotdogs (still looking for buns) and only home-made pizza ("the crust is strange")... *sigh*

If you need more reason to make kid-friendly gluten-free pop tarts and cereals...take a look at he stats on ADHD (on the CDC http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/adhd/data.html ).

Approximately 5-7% of the US has ADHD ( http://www.additudemag.com/adhd/artic... ) but it is undiagnosed. As of 2011, 11% of our children had ADHD. The percentage getting the diagnosis rises each year. If 20% of those people suffering from ADHD have a gluten sensitivity that causes the ADHD to be worse? How many lives could Kellog make better across this country by making more of our favorite foods gluten-free?

I too cant eat wheat. I believe the bigger problem is GM foods. If I eat organic Im ok, but eat this crap and I cant even work for 3 days. I dont believe I need to eat organic, but my body cant digest Roundup very well. Buy some decent grains from a reputable farmer, and my family might start eating Kellogs products again, but until then, you owe me for missed work..big nuisance you do to your "food" and very aggravating.

This is a great conversation that's separate from the main one, so I created a new conversation to continue the discussion.

Please reference the new conversation here: GMO concerns
