But what if you don't have an allergy to food dyes? What if you do a little research and find out that these food dyes could be negatively affecting your children's behavior?
A good friend of mine began eliminating food dyes from her girls' diets earlier this year as a result of behavior issues. They have been dye-free for eight months now, and if it weren't for her incredible stories about the impact this has made on their lives, I'd probably shrug it off.
Brooke is doing an entire series this week on her blog about their journey with food dyes. I'm going to be reading so that I can learn more and find out if this is worth pursuing for our family's health. I invite you to read along!
I'm excited to see what she's learned, even if it means our days of green and pink mashed potatoes might be coming to a halt...
