Kellogg's: Remove Artificial Food Dyes from Kids' Snacks
Just yesterday, we blasted a candy company for making health claims on the front of a package containing artificial food dyes suspected of causing health problems like cancer and ADHD. Today, we came across this petition "Tell Kellogg's: Artificial Food Dyes Don't Belong in Our Kids' Fruit Snacks"
Target: John A. Bryant, President & CEO Kellogg Company
Sponsored by: Erica Reid & Latham Thomas
We're both moms who care a lot about the food our kids eat. Kellogg's Fruit Flavored Snacks contain artificial colors made from artificial food dyes that have been linked to allergies and hyperactivity in some children. Kids like fruit snacks, particularly brightly colored ones marketed to them in the shapes of their favorite movie characters. Moms may choose to give their kids fruit snacks because they think they are healthier than candy -- but they're not.
Erica says, "I was absolutely one of those moms that gave both of my children fruit snacks thinking it was better than candy. At the time, I wasn't aware of the potential harm from food dyes and didn't think twice because the word 'fruit' was attached. Now, I know better."
Although I would never let my children eat Kellogg's "fruit" snacks, millions of children do. Please sign this petition!
