The reason this question is so frequently asked (whether out-loud or subconsciously) is because a huge percentage of toddlers around the world display ADHD-type characteristics.
The American Psychiatric Association reports that only 11% of children in the United States actually have ADHD.
So if your two-year-old is in a daycare center with twenty kids, only about two of those children (statistically) will actually end up being diagnosed with ADHD. Odds are, most of those kids just haven’t developed the abilities to think rationally, yet. Studies show that many of those abilities don’t start to refine themselves until the ages of three, four, or five. When maturation is slower than it ought to be, or doesn’t happen at all, ADHD might be the cause.
So remember: When it comes to ADHD in toddlers, it’s not so much about whether or not they show symptoms at that moment, but more about whether or not they will outgrow those symptoms and how quickly that will happen. There’s also the factor of how difficult it is for each toddler to accomplish certain things. If you watch a group of children who are all the same age, the ones who have ADHD will be less capable of following directions than the rest.
However, most parents don’t notice those differences until AFTER their child is diagnosed. A lot of it is about how the child is in relation to their peers (and to what degree), but so much of it is just waiting to see how they progress over time. As difficult as it is, an ADHD diagnosis requires months and months (sometimes years) of EXTREME PATIENCE and observation. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the earliest age ADHD can be diagnosed is four years old. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the average age of ADHD diagnosis is age seven. There are so many variables when it comes to making an ADHD diagnosis, one of those being how unique each and ever child is.
So if you’re wondering about whether or not your toddler has ADHD, my advice would be to keep an eye on things, do some research about it, talk to your pediatrician, and then wait!

A few weeks ago before we moved to The Barn I popped up a post about the Little Man’s love of pouring. The reason for thinking about Schemas and why I was so intrigued is that you can use them to your advantage.
Michelle asked me to write this post because I commented on her son’s fascination with pouring.  This, along with throwing, kicking and climbing, can be a sign of the ‘Trajectory’ Schema.  So, if Michelle wants to try cooking with Little Man, she might have the most success by picking recipes that allow him to pour things, preferably from a height!

When she’s older, she’s going to accuse me of favouritism because I have so many more pictures done by her sister as a toddler. But, while she loves all of this, she’s not remotely interested in the usual cooking with toddlers winner: mixing. Wow this is really interesting I think I have seen Boo go through different phases, the two that stick out for me is container and transporter. Such a fascinating post – this has definitely made me think about how my children approach things.

My sons were really bored by Lego (other boys of mums couldn’t understand!), but were happy moving a pile of gravel from one side of the garden to the other in buckets, and back again, to and fro, to and fro, for hours. Any parent of a toddler knows that mealtimes can be a minefield.But in this week's Scrubbing Up health column, child health specialist Su Laurent says some are attributing their offspring's dietary foibles to an eating disorder, rather than bad behaviour. I spend a significant amount of time seeing healthy young children whose parents are convinced that their child has an eating disorder.
All three situations are examples of how powerful a weapon food is and how quickly children can gain the upper hand over their parents. My heart sinks when I hear stories of mealtimes taking hours, of children being force-fed and parents sneaking food into their child while they're watching TV so that they won't notice they are being fed. One mother told me with pride that since the last time I saw her seven-year-old in clinic he'd tried a new food: he was now happy to eat KFC chips in addition to McDonald's chips.
Babies can eat finger foods from a very young age but parents are often fearful of the resultant mess and prefer to feed them off a spoon. However, if you pop in the daycare facility at any given moment, there will probably be ten or fifteen of those kids running in circles, not paying attention, being distracted by something shiny, doing something that’s not safe, etc.
In fact, those are the exact same years ADHD begins to become more apparent in children because those are the years doctors and caregivers start looking for children to mature in certain developmental areas.
You cannot diagnose a child’s ADHD on your own, and you cannot expect a doctor to do it during the toddler years. Before that, their symptoms really could just be age-related, rather than brain-difference-related. Most children and families have to wait a lot of years to truly know if their child is developing differently than their peers or just developing a bit slower.
Both of which will support, guide, and inspire you toward the best possible health outcomes for you and your family. You can join her community for recipes and more and be sure to follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest too for lots of great tips about cooking with kids.
If you spot your child showing a tendency towards a certain Schema, you can improve their engagement in an activity or toy (and therefore potential to learn) by re-enforcing it. With my Transporter daughter, the choice of recipe wasn’t important.   As long as she was doing a lot of moving things from board to bowl, bowl to cupcake case or bowl to bowl, she was happy.
The reason is because whenever Youngest draws something, she gets a dark felt tip and covers over the whole thing.

Does your toddler show signs of a Schema?  What activities or games might you do to re-enforce it? Funnily enough, I knew about schemas in a different context from the job I used to do, but would never have considered schemas in children. I think as much as terms can help, I’m wary of compartmentalising and thus potentially limiting children too.
Funnily enough, my sister in law was talking about this kind of thing the other week (she’s a nursery nurse).
My son is 2 years and 3 months and I think we’ve been through a few schemas already, with the current ones being transforming and transporting. Some parents think that their baby has an inability to swallow solids, others think that their child will fade away unless they are offered the few foods which they like and some parents say that their child eats nothing at all, despite the fact that they are consuming a packet of "Wotsits" in front of me! All three scenarios can be helped by a good health visitor, but sadly there are no longer enough health visitors to spend the time needed with first-time parents. Some parents surprise their toddlers by popping out from behind the sofa in an attempt to stuff a spoon full of food into their mouths. A baby who feels he's being force-fed has an amazing ability to clamp his jaw shut, turn his head away and even gag on food and refuse to swallow.
As an Enveloper, she seems to enjoy recipes where she can get her hands right into the mixture or where she gets to ‘cover’ ingredients (apple crumble).
Whereas, give a wooden spoon to a child who is a Rotator and ask them to mix and they’d be in seventh heaven. I don’t think I can see a tendency to just one of these yet in my little ones, but I’ll keep a look out now! The difficulty I face is that parents often have a fixed idea that their child has a disorder and it can be very hard to convince them that, on the contrary, their child is very powerful and is getting away with eating exactly what they want! Offer your child a small amount of healthy food and clear the plate away after 15 minutes even if he's eaten nothing.
She loves to have the pastry brush and brush oil all over pans to grease them or all over filo pastry to make samosas. It's often easier for a doting parent to believe that a child has a medical problem than a behavioural one. Don't make a big thing about it and resist all temptations to give him a snack before the next meal even if he's grumpy. A very stubborn child may refuse to eat for two or three meals but eventually will have to give in unless he's being offered snacks between meals. Remember the basic principles that food is a powerful weapon and your child won't fade away if he eats nothing for a day or two.
