When I was that age my mom tried to keep me off extra sugar and caffeine. So, I didn't get candy, cookies, most baked goods, and sometimes sauces and spreads like ketchup, jams, jellies, and such. I used artificial sweetener a lot, and I now prefer it in things like coffee, tea, and koolaid to using sugar.
Some people tell you to avoid red food dyes as they can increase hyperactivity in children, and I had that problem a little when I was a teen. I've recently gone completely caffeine and carbonated drink free. I haven't touched sodas in two months and I drink decaf coffee. I hope this helps you out.
