I agree, to an extent. Food additives can definitely have a negative impact on a child’s health and sleep patterns and it is most definitely worth investigating if you have a child with sleep problems.
But, it’s also worth noting that we’re all different. Sometimes sleep problems have other causes. It might be environmental, it might even be genetic or any number of other reasons.
Personally, I think that minimising additives is a wise course of action even if your child doesn’t have sleep problems.
