Parents, you may want to reconsider feeding your little tykes foods containing artificial food dyes. Although these dyes are approved by the FDA to enhance the color of processed foods, they can have negative effects on children's behavior, ability to focus, and more. Children with ADHD and ADD are especially susceptible to these effects. The most dangerous among them are Red No. 40, Yellow No. 5, and Yellow No. 6. Try eliminating foods with artificial food dyes from your children's diet! The only purpose they serve is color, not flavor. They're found in processed foods like candy, ice cream, and other sweets. One easy way to find whether or not these dyes are present is by reading the nutrition labels.
