{food for thought} Let’s Cause a RUCKUS

April 4, 2011

Nutrigrain Food Color Comparison

Have you read this piece in the Huffington Post by Laurie David and Robyn O’Brien on the FDA’s decision to continue supporting use of synthetic food color?

If not, check it out.
If you have read it… AMEN… right?

It turns out the Robyn is teaming up with Healthy Child Healthy World, a favorite organization with whom I work, to make a ruckus. We’re going to start with a “twitter party” which I hope to co-host and will take it from there. Stay tuned for details, including how those of you not on Twitter can catch up on what’s said and otherwise participate. We want everyone who can to join in telling the FDA that we’re mad as hell.


I’d love for you to think about how we can create as big a ruckus as possible. A petition? A rally? In person? Online? Leave ideas here, email them to me… let me know how you think we should make our voices heard and I’ll pass them to the passionate group of people working with Healthy Child Healthy World.

    How about all of the above!? And if that doesn’t work, I say we show up with buckets of food coloring and dump it over their heads. See how long it takes for them to scrub it all off and then find out if they think still think it’s ok to consume. LOL.

    There. I’m better now. : )
