When nutritionists recommend eating the colors of the rainbow, they aren’t referring to the ones created by food coloring. We’re not just talking Easter-egg dye—food coloring is hidden in dozens of different foods.

You know Chee-tos and Froot Loops aren’t exactly healthy. But what about those items that seem like fine enough snacks? Watch out for synthetic dyes in these grocery-store staples:

  • Dannon Fruit Blends & Light ’n Fit yogurt (some flavors)
  • Nutri-Grain bars
  • Vlasic pickles
  • Welch’s fruit snacks
  • Fruity Cheerios
  • Edy’s Slow-Churned ice cream (Some flavors, like French Vanilla and Neopolitan, contain artificial colors, while others contain added colors that are naturally derived — check the label before you indulge.)
