1 After one year of kindergarten [our son’s] teacher suggested that he should not go to school because “he couldn’t sit still.” The doctor asked if we would take him off sugar for six weeks and see if there was any change. The change was so dramatic that we began to look for other foods that might cause problems. Subsequently, we found that he was sensitive to soy. We began a program of diet control, and my son went from the lowest reading group to the top in six weeks. I am a school teacher and never understood the reasons for some children’s unruliness in the classroom. My plea is for teachers to be aware of this possibility.
