VIA| It’s every parent’s worst nightmare. After this mother found her baby girl covered in a mysterious rash, she took to Facebook to warn others. Every parent needs to see this.
Misty Lyn posted photos of her daughter’s alarming rash along with a warning to other parents on Facebook.
Mama Misty Lyn wrote that Harper’s terrifying rash was due to a popular cereal she ate for the first time. Misty wrote:
“Had to take Harper to the doctors today. Had no clue what gave her this rash until Steve told me that she had Applejacks cereal for the first time this morning. Poor girl! Did more research on it and this is what I found…Apple Jacks has the most popular food dyes known to cause behavioral problems in children; yellow 6, blue 1, red 40 and BHT. These food dyes are now illegal in Europe, but perfectly acceptable in America. BHT is a common stabilizer in pesticides, gasoline, lubricants, and soaps, but are also found in Apple Jacks. Yellow 6 has been linked to tumors in lab mice and red 40 has been known to cause severe allergic reactions.”
The facts are alarming. To think that these dangerous food dyes are illegal in Europe, but perfectly acceptable for our children to love and consume here in America is an outrage!
Though some might think that Misty is overreacting, you can check the full list of the Kellogg’s cereal ingredients here.
We pray that Harper recovers quickly! And we hope this beautiful baby girl’s alarming allergic reaction reminds us parents to double-check the ingredients before letting our children eat sugary foods.
Please share this with every parent you know. If we don’t get the facts out about these dangerous food dyes, who will?
