Parents are attractive targets for a con artist. Because parents long so deeply for the best for their kids, businesses spring up promising fantastic benefits even if they can’t deliver. We especially see this with solutions for very frustrating problems (ADHD) or very common ones (those pesky colds).
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is charged with protecting us from fraud. They have taken action against Pedi-Active A.D.D., a dietary supplement marketed to treat ADHD. They have previously taken action against other such products, including Efalex, God’s Recipe, and Pycnogenol.
When considering using a supplement for your child, you might first want to read the FTC brochure “Promotions for Kids’ Dietary Supplements Leave Sour Taste.”
