Intake of excessive junk food linked to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children!

We all know that junk food is one of the unhealthiest and most harmful foods. But we still manage to take a bite of a burger or indulge in cold and fuzzy drinks almost every day! It is time to make sure that your child does not eat too much of fast food.
