ANM-Magnet-WATERMARK2

 

Whether you’re following the Feingold Diet or just want to avoid harmful chemicals in your family’s food like dyes and artificial ingredients, this convenient magnet will help you make better choices! Perfect to share with family, friends, or teachers to share the details of your child’s diet, or keep in your purse for quick reference at the grocery store.

On the Feingold Diet:

  • High salicylate foods: Avoid
  • Medium salicylates: Can eat in moderation
  • Low salicylates: Can be eaten freely but keep in mind that everyone is different and a child can react to any food. Salicylates can also have a build-up effect.

This salicylate list is not all inclusive, but includes some of the more common ones for quick reference. For a full list of salicylates avoided on the Feingold Diet, please visit www.feingold.org.

Caramel Color: Some caramel coloring is obtained the old-fashioned way by browning sugar while other forms of caramel color are artificial and made from chemicals and petroleum sources. The Feingold Association researches how caramel coloring is manufactured before approving a product with caramel coloring.

Natural Flavors: Like caramel coloring, natural flavors can be truly natural, or they can be a convenient place for manufacturers to hide artificial ingredients, despite the “natural” claims. Refer to your Feingold shopping guide when natural flavors are listed.

Preservatives: It is common for some manufacturers to use preservatives on the packaging, and then not list this ingredient on their product. Cartons of milk or boxes of cereal are the most common products that use preservatives in this way. If vitamin A Palmitate is listed as an ingredient, it is common practice to preserve the vitamin A Palmitate with preservatives, which will not be listed in the ingredients.
