What are the effects of sugar to the body of kids?

The effects of sugar to the body of kids are severe. Sugar can harm the growth and performance of a child. Any kind of added sugar damages the protein in our body, resulting in aging of organs, which further compromises immunity, growth and functioning. Kids often fall sick, heal slow, are physically unfit and become lazy.

Greatest source of sugar in the average kid’s diet are sugary snacks and beverages like cookies, cakes, candies, fruit juice, soda, and sports drinks. Everything that the child picks up to eat today has strains of added sugar in some form or the other. The food industry has understood the formula to entice more and more kids towards their products- ADD SUGAR! While the small dosage of sugar treats is okay, but in this generation we have lost track on moderation.

Consuming 1-2 tsp of added sugar is acceptable in a day.

Our body runs on energy which is derived from Protein, Fat and Carbs. 50-60% of daily energy comes from carbs (Fiber + Sugar). Today, majority of the energy (calorie) from carbs is derived from added sugar intake. Whereas, for our kids to have a balanced healthy growth, we need the energy (calorie) to come from natural sources of carbs (sugar) along with protein and fat. The solution here is to shift focus to natural sweeteners like fruits, berries, dried fruits, honey, maple syrup etc. (what are some healthy sugar alternatives?)
