Sign the Food Babe’s Kellogg’s petition. I am a firm believer in what I call the safest common denominator when it comes to food. If a company is able to make a food product without certain ingredients in some countries because those ingredients have been deemed to be unsafe or require a warning label in those countries, then the company should be able to make that same product the same way in every country. The U.S. FDA allows a lot to be able to be put in our food supply, so I get that technically, the companies aren’t doing anything wrong. But does that make including artificial colors and potentially harmful chemicals in our food – right? Especially when the target audience is children? For me, the answer is a resounding no.
Food activist Vani Hari, a.k.a. the food Babe, strongly believes this as well. That’s why she’s asking all of us to sign a petition asking Kellogg’s to take artificial colors and BHT out of all of their cereals and replace them with safer alternatives. They’re able to do this with cereals made to be eaten in Europe and Australia, so why can’t they do the same in the U.S. and elsewhere? I highly encourage you to read about why Vani is taking this stance and then, if you agree, sign her petition.
We can vote with our dollars, and our voices can make a difference.
