I’m so happy that my family is together for Christmas this year. Last year my husband was deployed and I was very sick. Having him home and a healthy family makes me want to take advantage of EVERY moment we have together this holiday season.
One of my favorite family traditions is decorating Christmas cookies. My son has Aspergers. We’ve found, through trying different diets, that if we cut food coloring out of his diet, his behavior is much better. (If interested, here is a link about how food coloring and other additives are suspected to have a negative impact on health and behavior http://www.feingold.org) So, over the last few years my family has done our best not to give our kids food coloring.
