Staying away from artificial dyes takes a bit of work at the beginning.
- First, you have to read labels and so grocery shopping takes a little longer.
- Next, you have to get your family used to eating dye-free foods and teach them that eating these dyes are not good for them - eating petroleum just can't be good for you (especially when the food industry has put it in virtually everything).
- Then, if your children buy school lunches, you have to talk to the cafeteria manager to find out what has artificial colors and then teach your children what they are to buy.
- In addition, you have to teach your children that when they go to anyone's house, including at relative's houses, that they need to ask if the foods offered to them have artificial dyes.
Teaching your children to stay away from artificial dyes can make staying dye-free a piece of cake. They can still eat colorful foods and they will know that they are making a good choice. We just got some PureFun candy canes the other day without the synthetic artificial dyes. They are delicious!
