This is what I removed from my cabinets in an effort to rid our kitchen of artificial food dyes. I did keep liquid food coloring, a few boxes of Jello, and packets of Kool Aid but those will be used for art projects not for consumption!
This was hard for me. I like to make fun food for the kids and for years these nasty things have helped, BUT I know that I can still make fun food without any of this and my kids will be much better off.
I do want to note that I have no intention of denying my kids treats at birthday parties or school functions. I am trying to get it out of our house to minimize the amount they consume, but I will not stand over them and tell them they can't enjoy an OCCASIONAL treat on special occasions. I will tell them why I don't like artificial food dyes and encourage them to make wise choices.
