Food additives are frequently used in conventional foods to improve colour, taste, texture, smell and appearance. They’re also used to stabilise product processing and extend shelf-life. But artificial additives, colours and preservatives may cause a range of health problems in children including allergic reactions and more.
Food allergies can range from mildly annoying to mind-numbingly scary, especially when it’s your child that’s experiencing an allergic reaction. Managing food allergies is not that difficult, and you will need to take matters into your own hands in order to ensure that your child is well protected from allergens in your home, and everywhere else as well.
