Synthetic food dyes can trigger hyperactivity and other behaviors in some kids. Urge the maker of Pop Ice and Fla-Vor-Ice to drop dyes from ice pops.

Little Debbie Swiss Rolls are brown and white, but contain enough yellow, red, and blue dyes in just one serving to trigger hyperactivity in susceptible kids. Tell the company to get rid of the dyes.
