I've noticed that happen with Jas when she was younger, particularly if there were a lot of 'E' numbers in a food. I tend to try and avoid those as much as possible.

Are they as hyper when you feed them, say, grilled chicken and vegetables? If not, it sounds like it could be a food thing.

Having said all that, some kids just have boundless energy Yes

Artificial colorings have an additive that is linked to hyperactivity and ADHD.

also watch this. This is using coca cola zero as an example because these ingredients are used in all coloa.

I find anything with aspartame in it to be really bad and also some colourings are bad too
