Starting in January 2016, Kraft will replace the artificial colors including Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 with natural sources such as turmeric, paprika and annatto. 

Along with other health food activists, who have been petitioning for the change, we hope the changes will continue through many of their other products including Jell-O and Cool- Aid. Kraft insists that the mac and cheese will look and taste the same- great news for my picky eater!
