My debate:  If M&M's makes your kids hyper, give them a snickers instead or cut out chocolate all together!

You mean you don't think someone should demand that a major food company change their formulation because of your own child's issues?

I don't see anything wrong with asking & petitioning. & i don't see anything wrong with Mars saying no.

I think it it's odd to go all natural but want to feed your kid m&ms. Seems counterintuitive to me. ;-)

I'm little alarmed by the dyes being petroleum based and a "healthier" option would be nice. Not sure by we can't go with hat instead of one child being hyper.

 LOL...I wish!  My son has a skin allergy to latex foam rubber and that crap is EVERYWHERE!  From his golf clubs handles to nerf balls and even mattress covers.  I'd be petitioning the world.  I'd rather protect than petition.

Lol. M&M's are supposed to be a treat, not a staple.

If they make your kids hyper don't give it to them. Their are tons of different options.

It is amazing to me that people in the US would rather be filled with dyes and preservatives when these same companies make and sell healthier options in Europe where all dyes have been banned. We need to wake up as a society and stop being blinded by big business BS and the FDA.

Food dyes have been linked to cancers, hyperactivity, etc. Why do the people in the US think this is ok to be poisoned by our foods. I applaud this lady and have already signed the petition. My kids don't eat M&Ms or any candy from these companies currently b/c of the crap in them. We eat sunspire sun drops instead.

How many people have actually died by eating M&Ms?
You would have to eat bags loads every day every hr
