Food labels

Do you pay attention to what's in your kid's foods?  Do you read all the ingredients on the food labels?  Dangerous amounts of arsenic were found in organic powdered formula whose top ingredient was brown rice syrup.  Eyewitness News wants to know what you think.  Post your comments (below) and they could end up on Eyewitness News First at 4 p.m.

FYI: The study in question took place at Dartmouth COLLEGE, with research by scientists at the undergraduate school's Earth Sciences department and at Dartmouth Medical School. The institution does NOT go by the name Dartmouth UNIVERSITY

Baby homicide rates will increase because feeding your baby over-the-counter organic powdered formula beats the hell out of having to pay for Plan-B contraceptive pills that some insurance companies don't cover. Thanks, Mr. Bishop! This is just another way these Catholic people are trying to get more children in the parishes for the pedophile priests.

Yes, I try very hard to read food-ingredient labels and weed out those that contain controversial ingredients. Better safe than sorry I say.

Sometimes it's a very hard thing to do. I've found products that were acceptable to our family and put them on our shopping list confident that this was one item I didn't have to read the ingredient label on each and every shopping trip, and then only to be completely surprised that without warning the ingredients had changed and no notice of it was ever given other than the ingredient list changing on the label. So I guess it's back to always checking each and ever label.

You cannot completely control what your children eat when they are away from the home, but what is served in the home should be as healthy and nutritious as it can possibly be.

We had a good laugh though, all my weeding through ingredient lists and not allowing products with specific ingredients in the home must have rubbed off on my little guy who is seven-years-old: He's actually questioned the cafeteria worker at his school about what ingredients were in the box of cereal he had chosen for breakfast at school. She had a big smile on her face and did oblige him with a reading of the ingredient label. Kids, you gotta love them.
