In brief: ADHD overweight

No vitamin can replace a healthy lifestyle, ever. Also, for adhd, avoid industrial sugar.
Use natural sweets from fruits that never cause weight excess. Fruits have good nutrients and very little calorie compared weight per weight to industrial sweets [cookies-candies-cakes..].
