A mother’s testimony published on Facebook went viral due to its disturbing content. She shared it on her profile in order to warn other parents regarding the dangerous chemicals hiding in kids’ snacks after her own toddler experienced an allergic reaction to a famous cereal. To learn more about the chemicals, read on!
At first, when Misty Lyn saw the terrible rash that broke out all over her daughter’s legs, she couldn’t wrap her mind around the reason that had caused it.
Terrified that little Harper might have brushed up against something poisonous, she asked her husband to walk her through their baby girl’s morning.
Major red flags suddenly started popping up the moment Misty’s husband, Steve, told her that Harper had tried the popular cereal Apple Jacks for the very first time that morning.
With the new cereal in mind, Misty decided to do a little research of her own, and she was stunned by what she found.
“Had to take Harper to the doctors today. Had no clue what gave her this rash until Steve told me that she had Applejacks cereal for the first time this morning. Poor girl! Did more research on it and this is what I found…Apple Jacks has the most popular food dyes known to cause behavioral problems in children; yellow 6, blue 1, red 40 and BHT,” the mom wrote in a now viral Facebook post.
After what happened to her own daughter, Misty hoped to warn other parents about the dangers lurking inside their own pantries.
