Chromium for a 13 year
Is it safe to give my daughter 200mg of chromium daily for sugar cravings? She is ADD and on Eye Q and Patrick Holford's optimum nutrition vitamins for children, but periodically eats spoonfuls of sugar / Nesquick and other carbohydrates.

It would be better to opt for a GTF chromium that is more natural to food. Some synthetic minerals (iron, chromium and selenium) can have toxicity levels if used in high doses.
