Tears, tantrums and an additive warning
Additives that are commonly found in soft drinks and processed foods include Tartrazine E102, Sunset Yellow E110, Carmoisine E122, Ponceau 4R E124, and Sodium Benzoate E211. An LML gold medal goes to you if you can pronounce all of these and can explain what they are. What’s more worrying is that these additives are commonly found in foods and drinks that are specifically aimed at children.
Anyone who has attended a young child’s birthday party will recognise that these are usually divided into two parts. The first part is some sort of activity or party games, and the second part, is the birthday tea.
