While I’m hardly the first person to write a recipe on how to prepare steel-cut oatmeal, the way I prepare it has evolved over the years to fit my son’s sensory aversions to certain food textures. Like him, many children with ADHD and SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) have difficulty with certain tastes, texture and smells. Because eating is such a multi-sensorial experience, one of the ways I try to minimize nutritional deficiencies is to include whole foods with various textures and flavors as much as possible.
One of the strategies for jump-starting the ADHD brain is to have a protein-rich breakfast. That’s a challenge for people racing to get to school and work on time at the tune of Mission Impossible in their heads. Wait, is that just me? Well, I’m in no way Ethan Hunt—I’m really more like Maxwell Smart, so don’t judge. All I can say is that I try, TRY, to have some things ready to go—like breakfast.
Nice to e-meet you!
