    Has anyone tried the Feingold Program (a dietary program with no dyes, additives, etc)?

    This diet is supposed to be great for children who are ADD, ADHD.

    I know a little about it.  We eliminated food dyes, but didn't take the extra step to eliminate all natural foods that weren't on the beginning feinfold diet. 
    We did discover that artificial food dyes are problematic for my kids.  My youngest specifically stated that when she ate candy at school she felt that people were suddenly 'mean' to her and everyone was louder (sensory issues).  They don't get 'louder' if they eat the candy and she eats an all natural version. 
    Be careful with toothpastes and vitamins, if you try it.  It's amazing where food dyes turn up!

    I'm not strictly following this diet; however, I have tried to eliminate ALL of the dyes and additives my family eats.  Now, I'm not saying everything I buy is organic, but I have found some really inexpensive alternatives to organic choices that are natural and free of all the nasty junk.  I started this because I have 4 kids, 3 of which tend to have behavioral issues.  I have noticed some difference (improvements) in their behaviors and my theory is that it can't HURT to eliminate this stuff.

    We pulled our oldest off of red dyes when he was four.  His arms had the same rash that my brother gets when he eats too much red dye.  My sister-in-law reacts to red dyes with her throat swelling up.  So, we pulled him off of the reds.  Now, he eats zero artificial coloring as do the younger two.  We have found a dye-free "Jell-O" and pudding.  We also occasionally buy the dye-free M&M's and other treats.  Yummy Earth is a great brand that uses zero artificial anything and they're gluten free. 

    We've never tried this diet, but we've been eating gluten free since 2001 and we'll never go back to the gluten.

    I know my oldest won't go back on the artificial dyes as his skin breaks out in a fierce rash.

    Great question!

    The Feingold Diet is a lifestyle choice that eliminates synthetic dyes, additives and colorings as well as artificial sweeteners. Many children and adults benefit from this simple change in their eating habits. read more
