You might want to keep your kids away from the crazy colored foods. A new UK study is showing a link between artificial food coloring and hyperactivity in children. Scientists at England's University of Southampton, tested five different colorings on both three-year olds and eight and nine year olds. The amounts used in the study were comparable to that which an average child might consume in a day. All additives tested in the study are ones that are approved for use in the EU - however some of those colors are banned in the US (as well as Scandinavian countries). The full findings are not yet available, but should be published soon. Somehow I'm not surprised, a 2004 study showed similar results.
