Kraft is making some big changes to its mac and cheese.

The company says it plans to remove artificial yellow dye from macaroni and cheese products that come in kid-friendly shapes.

The dye will be replaced with spices like paprika.

“Original flavor” mac and cheese won’t be affected by the changes, the company said.

The move comes after a petition was launched asking Kraft to remove the artificial dye. The petition garnered over 348,000 signatures.

Kraft is pulling the coloring from at least three of its boxes including Sponge Bob, Halloween, and winter shapes.
