Artificial Food Colors - HELP

After reading an article on food colors (red, yellow, blue) I am experimenting with taking my 3 year old off all "yellow, blue and red" colors to see if it will improve his behavior. Does anyone know or have experience with items labled with "artificial color"?

He goes right to sleep! It seems too easy and an option I don't want to grow...

Baby Food: Pre-made or Make It for My 6 Month Old?

Hi Mommies, I have a beautiful 6 month old and we're just starting her on baby food. I've been using organic store-bought baby vegetables such as peas, squash, and sweet potatoes. I've heard that these baby foods have too many chemicals in them but the labels say no preservatives and the ingrediants are only the vegetables and water. I want to give my baby the best while at the same time keeping my sanity. I work a full-time demanding job and so I don't have a lot of time to prepare meals.
