There have been lots of studies investigating a possible link between colours and childhood hyperactivity or attention deficit syndrome.
The results have not given a clear-cut answer. Behaviour in children is a very complex area and many different factors could be responsible for any problems.
Evidence suggests that a person’s whole diet can have an effect but it has not been narrowed down to particular foods or additives.
There is a vast amount of information about food additives and hyperactivity on the internet. Much of it is unregulated and can be biased. Always look at the information closely to see how reliable it is.
