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.
This is our sweet little conure. I accidentally bought a supplemental fruit snack that looked completely organic, but it suprisingly had artifical colors. After a week of crazy squawking and fierce biting from our beloved bird, I looked at the one thing I changed recently - the fruit supplement! I threw away the bag and this morning we have our sweet bird back! No more evil biting, squawking, or odd behavior (like wanting to stay in his cage instead of playing with us). I think it's time the pet industry looks into this. It can't be good for these little critters either.
