    I can tell the minute DD has had preservatives/colours/flavours (even the so called "natural" ones). Even a dot of tomato sauce, or some soy sauce with caramel colouring in it, in her dinner. She gets aggressive, impulsive and hyperactive. She can't sleep and tells me it's because she feels "crazy".

    I haven't been able to eliminate them all together (her dad and his family don't understand and let her eat whatever when she is with them) but minimising it as much as possible has made a huge difference.

    Danielle- your statement that you noticed a difference at first but now aren't sure... That happened with dd1 as well. The reason was that I took her off certain things she was intolerant of but introduced new foods as substitutes, and she was also intolerant of those! For example I took her of wheat, but introduced some plain rice crackers that had msg on them...

    Trust your instincts, if you noticed a difference at first then you are on the right track! Keep investigating, you'll work it out :thumbup:

    I am into week 2 of the elimination diet with DS1 in the hope it would improve his behavior (tantrums, aggression, etc) but I actually haven't seen a huge change. He was pretty much already off artificial colors/flavors/preservatives. Hoping in the next week things start to change for the good!

    We are 10 weeks into additive/preservative free. We also removed some of the high salicylate things such as tomatoes ad dried fruit as DD was eating heaps of them. We did this for behaviour reasons. We noticed a positive reaction within the first 2 weeks. And have so far had 2 slip-ups - both which had noticeable results in the behaviour. Currently we are not failsafe ie not avoiding salicylates, amines etc but are looking at going down this path very soon.
