Some of you may not know but my son has had behaviorial issues for most of his life. You can read more about our life HERE.

With that said.....

A friend just called me and told me that Charles Gibson is doing a story on food coloring and artificial flavors and the health (and behavioral) problems are kids are having. It's on at 6:30 PST.

Check your local ABC station: ABC NEWS With Charles Gibson. Watch it and let's discuss tomorrow!!!

Jun. 3, 2008 at 1:25 PM Red and orange are the worst food colors.  We don't eat food with dyes.

I have gotten rid of red dye for cameron and its truly amazing the difference just that has made. But he is still throwing big fits and has no response to being punished and goes right back to repeat the offense! I need to get the full list. That book is sooo expensive for our budget right now with just moving! I wonder if the library carries it. We need to get info. I got organic peanut butter cause i heard the regular can cause problems. I know my mom said when my sister had these issues when she was younger she couldnt have msg. So im trying to cut that out too. We need to know options for when we go out more than anything!

So glad the diet is working for y'all! I will definitely watch tonite!

Jun. 3, 2008 at 4:17 PM joaniedanger: You are right. There is no aspartame in my house. We have the yellow packets in my house for my husbands coffee,,but he has stopped using it since we started on the feingold program. Now, I have no idea what to do with it!!! And I have stopped drinking Diet Coke. I used to have one a week, then I thought, if I am only having one, why poison myself!! So, if I have the urge for a soda.. sprite. At least there is no aspartame and artificial coloring! The better choice of the evils!!!
