Who needs food additives?

Hello, hello, now we finally have researchers acknowledging that a food additive that might be considered safe in an adult may be very damaging in a child. What’s more they want future research to look at the “holistic” combination of additives, rather than one in isolation! This isn’t exactly rocket science ... a child, with rapid growth rate and metabolic and detoxification processes still developing, will potentially experience unsafe or toxic cumulative exposure in relation to his body weight.

Well yesterday it was soft drinks and today it’s food additives, but here it is again. You can’t wait for manufacturers to change the additives, reduce the dose or substitute a benign option. Your child doesn’t need a diet that is full of food additives - end of story! Neither do you and this is particularly the case when you're TTC, pregnant or breastfeeding!
