I'm with you. So what? My boys are well behaved in restaurants, too, but I wouldn't be offended by a no kids policy. In fact, my husband and I recently walked out of a sushi restaurant because of the family at the table next to us. It was non-stop "eat our roll. eat your roll. If you don't eat your roll, you won't be able to play video games. If you don't eat your roll, you'll have to go to bed as soon as we get home." After five minutes of that, we left money on our table to pay for the drinks we ordered but hadn't received yet and walked out. I'd welcome a no-kid restaurant once in a while. There was no way we were going to sit through an entire meal of that.

I was very vigilant about food dyes even before I started feeding my kids much more naturally because I saw the difference in my youngest's behavior and mood after having foods that had been dyed. It is a concern with today's parents, but most of us tend to just avoid it instead of voicing our concerns to the food companies. It's time to start making a fuss.

It's very similar to yogurt. It has no sugar in it, but it's not as sour as yogurt without sugar. I've never had kefir, but I think that I'll be learning about more of the ferments and will eventually get there. I put a little agave in my viili to sweeten it up just a bit, but you can also add chopped fruit or anything else you'd add to yogurt.
