Proven dietary solutions to behavior, learning & health problems

Who are we and what do we do?

Food dyes have been shown to trigger a great many behavioral, learning problems, and health problems.

We are a nonprofit organization of people of all ages.  We have found that many physical, behavioral, and learning problems, including what is being called ADHD, have been dramatically helped by removing food dyes and other harmful additives. 

Published research has shown that certain additives negatively affect behavior, learning, and health. We will show you how to find the foods you enjoy, minus unwanted additives.

Synthetic dyes are found in many things beside food — toothpaste, vitamins, mouthwash, lotions and medicine, to name a few. Artificial flavorings, preservatives, and even some healthy foods can bring on symptoms. Happily, there are many readily-available options, and parent volunteers share our information with you.

“Artificial food colors, common in children’s food products, may be associated with worsening attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Studies cited in the report found a significant number of children who cut out synthetic food colorings from their diets showed decreased ADHD symptoms.”
