I just read in USA Today that teens are getting large amounts of sugar each day from soda, energy drinks and other sugary beverages. The article said that many adults also get a lot of their daily calories from these drinks. Their data showed that half of our population in the USA drink sugary beverages on any given day.
I wanted to bring this to your attention because we know that children form lifetime eating habits in the first seven years. With sugar-related difficulties like obesity and diabetes being such big problems in our country, it only makes sense to stay on top of your child’s food choices right from the start.
