AFTER YEARS of blaming already-beleaguered parents for failing to curb the appetites of their ever-chubbier kids, some fast-food makers are shouldering a little responsibility themselves. Good for them - and for us. They're not admitting blame here, of course, not saying that all those hours of TV ads for sugary snacks, or the schoolbook covers featuring greasy treats, or the free samples of salty munchies could have had any effect at all on what U.S. kids want to eat. They're not even suggesting that perhaps putting fries into a meal meant for toddlers or packing sweet fruit punch and a candy bar into a ready-made school lunch pack could train children to salivate for such empty calories with every dinner for the rest of their lives.

Spurred on by a successful revolt against artificial food dyes in the United Kingdom, a prominent U.S. food safety advocacy group Tuesday called on federal regulators to ban several colorings, claiming they're linked to hyperactivity in children. Although it may be a long shot - the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has rejected such claims - food safety advocates say they hope that by putting a spotlight on the issue, producers will voluntarily drop artificial colors. That's what has been happening in the U.K., as industry giants such as Kraft Foods and Mars have reacted to increasing consumer worries over artificial colors, particularly after a British study bolstered the hyperactivity theory.
