Kid Safe

Data Base for food product additive warnings and kid save foods

The following is a list of foods by company that our readers have asked us to find information on.  Our primary focus is on food additives not nutrition.  A food will be listed as “Kid Safe” if it contains no food color additives or preservatives or any other additive deemed to be controversial or dangerous to growing children.

If a food does not include any additives even it nutritionally might not be great for your child you will see a Kid Safe sign.

If the food doesn’t have enough information or has some questionable additives it will be listed as Caution.

If the food contains even one additive that is bad for growing children we will list it as NO or Not Kid Safe
