food coloring + Pearl = no zzzzzzzz's

We have discovered that Pearl has an intolerance for certain food coloring dyes.
It makes her wired.
Wired to the point that she can't sleep.
It has happened with Orange Crush,
colored candy, and certain medicines.
I think it mostly happens with things that are

Here she is two nights ago.
You can tell she is exhausted, 
but her little mind is running wild.

She sat with her baby and watched....
you guessed it, the Little Mermaid.

We have alot of customers that come into the store and their children cant have the suckers beacuse of either red dye 6 or red dye 32(most common reactions dyes). Not to question you but I have learned alot of people think its the orange but more likely to be the red. Have you had her tested? I didn't know that they did this until I spoke with several people about it at our store, its more common than I ever thought. Good Luck!

Oh Pearl, you are so cute.

I think Orange crush might have caffeine in it.
