What do you do when your child ‘drives you crazy’ with a bad attitude and is misbehaving? Even if it happens once in a while, how do you keep calm? Could proper food, quality sleep and nutritional supplements help change the way they behave?
Today my son had a kind of bad day with misbehaving, lots of whining and not using his words well. Instead of feeling frustrated and giving up, I sought out answers from my Facebook friends.
My question was: Could today have been bad because
a) He went three days without taking a nap
b) He ate more processed food and sugar this weekend than he has in three months including French fries, chicken nuggets, and Wendy’s Frosty his Nana gave him last night
c) He didn’t take his vitamins and minerals in the last three days
d) All of the above
Most of the moms believed his misbehavior could be due to all of the factors listed above.
Some gave me a little more detail on how they dealt with these problems with their kids.
When Harley gets into too much sugar, dyes and dairy it becomes easy for him to see what the difference is, when he’s had candy I give us a time out until he’s had some time to wear it off. Its become clear to him what the consequences of his consumption are, what makes him feel good, what makes him feel bad and what gets him into trouble.
Corinne D. believes it is all of the above and shared:
My son says he must have had “too much sugar” when his tummy hurts.
Amy L. said:
Oh yes! My MIL used to give my boys so much junk one would throw. Up almost every time they came home from a stay there!
Mary A. agreed that D is the answer and added:
My whole family gets crazy when we don’t eat right, get enough sleep or don’t take vitamins for a certain amount of time. Makes me more aware of how important it is to stay on track.
Penny Clair who is an oiler and a mom of two wonderful children shared this:
NingXia Red a mainstay, this supplement has made all the difference in my kids, especially when they have consumed too much sugar, the immediate calming effects that take place in them after taking NR is amazing.
My daughter is the worst with sugar I can tell when she has gotten her hands on it, she becomes a maniac, and blue dye creates melt downs, we avoid blue dyes all together…but it is the NR that brings balance back. We use Pure Protein in breakfast smoothies.
Peace and Calming is used at night for a peaceful night’s sleep. We have started juicing regularly here, using kale, lemon and limes a lot, adding Stevia, a drop of lemon vitality oil, sometimes lavender vitality oil. This time of year we make apple cinnamon smoothies made with plain yogurt or kefir for a nice snack.
An article found on FoodMatters.TV, Which Food Additives Make Children Behave Badly? is a must-read for families with children. They wrote:
Research on a group of three-year-olds who lack concentration, lose their temper, interrupt others and struggle to get to sleep when they drank fruit juice dosed with colorings and preservatives.
We know sugar, processed food and additives might pose problems to kids’ behaviors. Proper nutrition is essential to nourish their mind, body and soul. Vitamins, essential fatty acids, minerals and amino acids are required for growing kids, particularly in the first few years. Not only will it help with growth and other crucial developments of the body, it will give them optimum health.
The lack of proper nutrition will lead to negative effects and negative behaviors. It will affect the way they nap or sleep at night.
Let’s take a look at some of the essential vitamins needed:
NingXia Red has powerful antioxidants, is rich in minerals, polysaccharides, amino acids and vitamins. There are no additives, coloring or sugar added to this superfruit drink. Just imagine you don’t have to buy tons of vegetables and fruits to get the amount of minerals and vitamins that are present in NingXia Red.
Moms and dads, it is difficult to find nutrient dense food in the market today. Whether at school or at a gathering, kids can be enticed with the many “happy meals”, candies and treats that come their way. As parents it is not always easy to be the “police” of what our kids consume at all times.
My kiddo’s have been having 1/2 an oz of Ningxia Red almost daily for many years. They crave it now and I as a mom can tell when they haven’t had their NingXia Red and healthy diet. They can’t focus as much, their sleep is off, and my son gets phelgmy. I do my best to keep NingXia Red a Staple in my family.

We know that our children’s food, sleep, minerals and vitamins are crucial to kids’ development and behaviors. Food, sleep, nutrition and behaviors are inter-related. I encourage you to see for yourself. You take NingXia Red Daily along with your kiddos for 30 days then stop. I promise you will notice the “Difference” .
