The purpose of this directed project was to create an infographic which compared nutrition recommendations made on social media to evidence-based research found in peer reviewed research. The target audience of this infographic was parents of children ages 4-17 who have been diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. The goals of this project were to conduct a literature review on the association between Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and nutrition and an additional literature review of common diet recommendations found on social media. The results of these literature reviewed were synthesized into an easy-toread and visually appealing infographic intended to be shared on social media websites.
Established ADHD specific nutrition recommendations are limited. As a result, a large percentage of parents of children with ADHD look on the internet to find dietary advice. Often times, the claims found on blog posts and articles found on websites are not cited and are not evidence-based. In the six topics researched and included on the infographic, five were determined to be false. Survey results indicate that both parents and nutrition professionals were satisfied with the infographic as a whole.
