"Once you know how to dye your Easter eggs with natural dyes, you will be able to eat your hard-boiled eggs without worrying about artificial food dyes. The traditional Easter egg kits use synthetic dyes. And, although they are approved by the FDA for food use, there are still concerns about their link to things like ADHD and cancer. I’m also concerned that the food dye tablets include sodium lauryl sulfate. This has been linked to all sorts of health concerns. While only a small amount of the dye ends up on the portion of the egg you eat, it’s enough of a concern that I prefer to use natural dyes instead. Using natural dyes for your Easter eggs really isn’t difficult and can create unique colors that you may not have thought of before."
