They are some of America's favorite little treats. And now, there is a push to make a change to M&M's.

Several parents claim the coloring in the candy makes their kids hyperactive.

140,000 people have signed a petition, asking Mars to use natural plant coloring instead of artificial coloring.

The company said they are considering the change.

In November, under similar pressure from parents, Kraft took out the iconic artificial yellow coloring contained in some of its macaroni and cheese products.
