5-10 years ago I wouldn't have given it a second thought buying the cereals on top. They were a staple in our girl's diet for 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀. After getting sick and 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗰𝗲𝗱 to make changes, I started digging into the foods we eat - more specifically in regards to toxins.
One of the things we started with when removing toxins was food dyes.
Did you know, the UK requires a warning label “consumption may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children.” when artificial colors are used.
Companies don’t want to put that warning all over their products b/c then who would want to buy them? Which is why they don’t use the same ingredients overseas as they do here!
The child on average consumed between 100 mg - 200 mg a day of synthetic dyes.
These are just swap ideas we’ve used to get started.
Over the years we’ve phased out cereal, saving it for a treat occasionally.
Artificial dyes are not only in our food, it's in our health and beauty supplies as well.
One thing we’ve done to reduce the stress of swapping all, is to replace as we run out.
Over time we’ve been able to swap most items in our home without the added mental stress.
