The additional label information on foods containing E102 , E104, E110, E122, E124 or E129 will be obliged to state: “Consumption may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children”.

Foods containing any of the six
colourings highlighted in a study by Southampton University as
affecting children's behaviour will have to carry a warning on their
labels under new EU regulations due to come into force in the middle
of 2010.
