Added Sugar Consumption In Toddlers Is On The Rise In The US
13 June 2018, 08:29 | Silvia Roy
Added sugar is sugar that's put in food during preparation or processing.
A representative study of toddlers showed that 99% of children aged between 19 to 23 months eat over seven teaspoons of added sugar each day on average. And as children grow up, their preference for unhealthy foods is likely influenced by a sugar-filled diet in early life, according to researchers. The finding came as a result of a study done on children between the ages of 6 and 23 months old. Artificial sweeteners with zero calories and natural sugars found in fruits, vegetables and milk weren't included. At present the guidelines recommend using 6 teaspoons or less daily in individuals aged between 2 to 19 years and adult women and less than 9 teaspoons for adult men per day.

Now, according to the CDC, all these pediatric illnesses are triggered by a higher added sugar consumption than normal in toddlers across the U.S. and the experts recommend parent to avoid feeding their children with products that are known to contain added sugar, such as sweetened cereals, candies, sweet sodas, fruity yogurts, and so on. There are statistically proven links between high sugar and asthma and heart diseases.
"This is the first time we have looked at added sugar consumption among children less than 2 years old", said Kirsten Herrick, a nutritional epidemiologist at the CDC and the lead author of the study. "These data may be relevant to the upcoming 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans", she said in a society news release. The research titled "Consumption of added sugars among US infants aged 6-23 months, 2011-2014" was presented at the American Society for Nutrition annual meeting in Boston on June 10. To measure the consumption of added sugar, the researchers documented foods containing cane sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, honey and other forms of sugar. More than half of 6 to 11-month-olds surveyed were given added sugar on a given day. However, parents should always have the goal to give their children less added sugar, say the researchers of the study.
Government wins Brexit bill vote after concessions
Conservative lawmaker Phillip Lee resigned as a justice minister Tuesday so he could speak out against the policy on Brexit. The government averted a rebellion on Tuesday over whether Parliament should have a decisive say in such a scenario.
According to Herrick most adults are exceeding the recommended limits of sugar intake and this is reflected in the children of the household as well.
She also advised people to opt for healthier ways to satisfy a sweet tooth, such as choosing more foods like whole fruits and vegetables and less of pre-sweetened cereals or juices.
