Five years ago, studies from the University of Southampton UK (2007) confirmed that these 6 colours could cause hyperactivity in children. http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140673607613063/abstract

As a result of this research, these 6 colours are being removed from ALL foods in the UK.  But they a still in many of the coloured food in New Zealand.
