This blog is to advocate for children who seem to have behavior problems, but are really reacting to the artificial dyes found in foods and medicines. It is to help others to be more aware of how food affects your mood. Children and adults can suddenly become irritable, have headaches, and even become angry or aggressive after ingesting synthetic artificial dyes. I recommend avoiding all artificial colors. This blog was created to help you find the information you need.
Whole Foods Market has many Red-Dye-Free foods we Love!
When shopping for dye-free products, I found that Whole Foods Market had a wide variety to choose from. My children enjoy, on occassion, the gummy bears, lollipops, and poptarts that are made without artificial dyes. We order all of our birthday cakes from them and find them more delicious than the artificially colored cakes. I would highly recommend these cakes for children's birthday parties because it is very likely that a few children are sensitive to the artificial dyes in other cakes. It would help to eliminate the hyper-active mood swings that might follow. The Whole Foods Market has much more to offer. I only wish that we had a Whole Foods Market in our community.
