    Raw cacao does not contain caffeine. The two alkaloids caffeine and theobromine are stimulants with similar structures but are both very different chemicals with different properties and effects. Theobromine is found in raw cacao.

    It's apparently a chemical called
    Theobromine ( I researched it after the last thread!) Its a mild stimulant which the reason some can feel energized after eating cacao ( and chocolate)

    I didn't think it contained caffeine...just know a few moms on here have commented that it effects their children. If it contains a stimulate then probably not best for a child experiencing sleep and behavioral issues, ya know?

    Sorry I was meant to quote someone else 😬
    Oh and fair call on using it for children but it doesn't have the same effects as caffeine but it does stimulate the central nervous system to a degree so hence my fair call 😊

    Sounds like she's not getting good quality sleep. Have you gotten a referral to an ENT?

    Sure you can look at reducing packaged food and sugar, but with mouth breathing and snoring evident, I'd say it's sleep that's her issue, not food.

    Thanks for all the advice. We have started cosleeping which I don't love as I feel like neither of us get quality sleep but it's better than her up and down like a yoyo.
    Will definitely look into that diet after we get back from holidays. In terms of the ent, if gp thinks ears and throat are fine and X-ray showed normal adenoids then is there anything else that they could find? I still find she snores although not all the time.
    I've been tiring her out more with swimming in the late arvo which helps her to go down easier. Plus in perths heatwave, it's rather nice!
