While both my kids are very active, I don’t consider them to have behavioral issues. But many parents do have to deal with behavioral issues with their kids, so when I saw this I had to post.

Over on Blogging Baby there’s a post about the possibility of corn causing behavioral problems such as tantrums with some children. The issue is essentially a mild allergy.

If you think about it, corn is a hard one to avoid. Sugar from corn is very often used as a sweetener. Think about how often high fructose corn syrup appear on ingredient lists.

While it wouldn’t be easy to avoid, I can certainly see just testing for a problem by reading labels and avoiding anything that might have corn or corn syrup in it. You’d have to learn the many ways that it is listed but it should be doable.
