I never really thought twice about food coloring - and if I did, I thought how wonderful it was. Isn’t it great that you can make a green cake, decorate Easter eggs, customize treats for children, make play dough, etc? It seemed like every label I checked had some type of food coloring in it, so that means it’s safe, right? Unfortunately, the answer turned out to be a resounding NO!
Why was it that some members of my family reacted after eating foods with color? Was it my imagination? Was it something else in the food? What about other children whose parents shared the same concern? Why does one child become hyperactive, another get sleepy and yet a third break out in a rash? These questions haunted me and I needed to find out.
