hiya my ds doesnt have adhd but is seriously efeected by artificial colours and sweetners not just behaviourly but he gets a awful rash too{angry]
i cant seem to place my list at the mo but we avoid e numbers 100 to 199 as a quick and easy rule. even though they dont all effect him. i had a very handy little list from organix if you go on there web site im sure it will be there . they call it the dirty dozen!!!
also google artificial colours e numbers . good luck hin
sorry not much help.
