Many people feel that preservatives and additives are not part of a healthy diet. Some people are allergic to certain preservatives, (like MSG). Some feel that additives like food dyes are harmful for kids and adults who have ADHD or an autism spectrum disorder. Vegetables are a great way to get more vitamins into your diet. Snikiddy has its headquarters is Bethesda, Maryland. The name Snikiddy has a story behind it. Mary’s mother, Janet, sent her kids to school with healthy lunches. One of the teachers described the kids as persnickety. That’s a difficult word for young children to say, so they called Mary and her sibling “Snikiddy kids”. The name stuck!
