    Thanks so much for sharing this story. Ours is a similar one with our son. He gets fidgety, can’t make eye contact, his speech deteriorates, he doesn’t have control over his muscles, has spasms, and has practically convulsed. We didn’t know what the triggers were for years, and our doctors had no answers. We tested him for food allergies and learned he had some sensitivities that were affecting his sleep and behavior.

    But now we know it’s food dyes. It breaks my heart to see him struggle. He’s been off food dyes for about two years and has come so far. It took one dip and lick of a finger in “green” water in science class last year to get a response that lasted about four days. Thankfully, he recognizes how horrible it is and won’t touch any food that he doesn’t know the source.

    It’s not been easy and we’ve learned a lot. Which is probably why we started Feed Our Families to help other parents feed their children healthier foods.

    I applaud your friend for taking the extra effort to keep her child free of food dyes!

    Hi Tela,

    Thanks for your comment on my article and for the link to this one. Wow! What a powerful story. I’m so glad Jonathan and his family are now healthy and happy.

    Also I really like your website. I truly believe good, natural parenting is one of the most important and least explored lessons in our society. In case you’re interested, I am a children’s health writer for I’m a little behind on writing for it, but I will get back to it very soon.

    Anyway my point is I’d like to stay in touch with you since I also want to educate parents about raising happy, healthy children!
