What this little book can do for you…
Yes it really can reduce the stress at home, school or work!
Simply because there are a lot of additives used in our foods, that are not as non-offensive as they are made out to be, and cause a wide range of symptoms,
including irritability, headaches, insomnia, anger and aggression, poor concentration, gut problems and skin problems as well.
Why should you avoid some additives?
Food can upset people for many reasons. And one important
component that often gets forgotten – or even known at all – is the impact of artificial chemicals and additives in our foods. Food additives are used to prolong the shelf life of food, and improve appearance and flavour.
But the use of some of these food additives can come at a
price to our health.
Around 65 of the 300 chemicals used in our food supply in Australia
have not been fully tested for safety. This means they have not been tested for how they interact when mixed together, or how they interact when in the human body. Nor are they tested for their effects on hormones, or on brain development, and their effect on children’s health is especially not known. Artificial colours, flavours and preservatives can cause a range of health and behavioural problems in children, which means these additives are not as innocent as some manufacturers want
us to believe.
If you or your child tend to be irritable, demanding, easily annoyed, can’t concentrate, is easily distracted, restless, has difficulty sleeping (either getting to sleep or staying asleep), or are prone to low moods… then think food.
Reducing the food additive load is the most direct and foundational way to start to bring improvements in all these areas. For many people, even just reducing the amount of additives in their diet, can make a big difference.

Sneak peak inside the book…
User tip: The additives that are considered best to avoid are the ones identified by the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital allergy unit, and are the ones most frequently found to be problematic for a person’s health and mood. Sensitivity to additives are usually dose related ie the more you eat, the more likely you will react.
Even just reducing the amount that comes in, can make a difference.
The ideal diet is one more based on whole foods and foods that are less processed, but many of us can’t leap straight into that and need to take it step to step.
This list will get you started on reducing the additive load simply and easily, and lists of foods that most families are buying from the supermarkets.
This means that just because a food is listed, doesn’t mean it is the right choice for your or your families particular needs!
Important note: manufacturers can change their ingredients suddenly and without warning, or give any notice on their packaging.
There is no guarantee that a product on the current list will remain low-to-no additive, so if you are already aware of an additive/s you need to avoid,
double check the packaging regularly.
