The Red Dye Free Store - Where to find products without synthetic Dyes

The Red Dye Free Store has Easter Stuffers without Red Dye 40!

    I just updated the Red Dye Free Store so that it would be easier to find Easter Basket stuffers without all of the harmful artificial dyes.  If you click on the Red Dye Free Store link, it will take you directly to the store.  I included items like candy, stuffed toys, Webkinz Easter stuffed animals, fun and inexpensive toys, and many other fun items to explore!

    Your child can have everything and more without the harmful artificial dyes that are being consumed so abundantly today.  Do the ingredients in your Easter candy look something like this?  “Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Palm Kernel Oil and/or Palm Oil), Whey, Cocoa, Lactose, Skim Milk, Soy Lecithin, Vanillin, Artificial Colors (Blue #1, Blue #2, Red #40, Yellow #5, Yellow #6 & Red #3). May contain Peanuts/Nuts.”   Look at all of the artificial colors in just one Palmer Bunny!  Artificial colors such as these are derived from petroleum- a coal tar.  Some children are very sensitive to these dyes.  Some children may experience hives, migraines, stomach aches, and hyper-activity (to name a few).  Some children are very sensitive to red dye 40 and it effects their behavior drastically and they become defiant and even belligerent.  It is important that parents are aware because staying away from these dyes can change their relationship with their child who is sensitive to the dyes and they can enjoy who they really are.
    I wish everyone a very Happy Easter and may it be very Happy!  :)


  1. Love this post! As you may know holidays can be so difficult. Its good we have options available. I'm going to share this too! I look forward to future posts and invite you to follow along with me too.

  2. Dear Mom Said,
    Thank you for your kind comment! Yes, I created the Red Dye Free Store so others could find alternatives and maybe realize that it is not very hard to find these items in the market. Holidays always bring up images of brightly colored, decorated deserts and treats, but you can find other treats with real food ingredients that are just as decorative. I like your blog! I'm so glad and thankful that others are sharing the news! I look forward to reading more of yours!
