Now, I have heard the food dye(food coloring) can cause ADHD and cancer.
Do you believe this to be true.
Red 40, yellow 7, and blue 5.
At least I think those are right, have been proven to cause certain diseases and illness in children.
I don't know what to believe in, but I knw that the fruit gummy snacks that I give to my children have food dye in it.
Now I am a mother of moderation.
I think it is ok to give my kids snack and candy, but in moderation. They are kids and thats what kids do, but again in moderation.

All I can say is that from an experience I had with my 3 year old at the time. I always bought Juicy Juice Apple juice in the little boxes for him and he would sip on a box throughout the day (he always had water to drink too). One day I bought him the Juicy Juice in the blue box for a change. He drank it for 3 days (3 boxes total) & suddenly my kid was a wild man! Hyped up, wild, irritable, frustrated etc. I could only think of one thing he was eating differently, the blue juice! I put it away & returned to apple juice & within a day, he was back to his old self again. So yes, NO BLUE dyes for us here. I even posted a question about it at the time here on CM & got a lot of similar replies.
