Her comment perfectly captures the challenges so many of us face when making purchasing decisions for ourselves and our families:
"I found this site when I Googled "Trix yogurt & hyperactivity," because my son ate one yesterday (his first and LAST!), and went into a mad tailspin. When we checked the ingredients all we saw was sugar & chemicals. My husband felt terrible because he bought it thinking it would be a healthy snack—what could be wrong with yogurt? How are they allowed to even call this yogurt?"The moral of the story? All of us should be reading the ingredient labels on the foodstuffs we are buying, since the chemicals present may explain why our kids (and maybe even us!) are bouncing off the walls.
I am not pulling this out of left field; click here to read about the McCann Report, an English study that showed how “artificial colors . . . in the diet result in increased hyperactivity.”
