In brief: ADD medication
I recommend stopping add medications(except straterra)on weekends and vacations unless there is an activity that requires it.
This allows the return of a normal appetite to offset the dinished appetite so commonly caused by these medications on school days. This allows for a more balanced and adequate diet over the long term.
