(NEWS 8) - A lot of our issues stem from our diet. For children, a healthy diet can have a tremendous impact on their focus and attention span.
So many snacks and foods marketed toward children have additives that are proven to hinder their brain's performance. Dye is one example.
According to author and fitness coach JJ Flizanes, food dye is scientifically proven to lower a child's IQ and can make their brains hyperactive, which affects their focus. It's known to cause tumors and lead to some cancers.
Dye is present in all sorts of foods, like packaged drinks and desserts, so watch out.
Flizanes talked more about dyes with News 8's Nichelle Medina and also shared some quick and easy healthy recipes for moms on the go.
