I work in an area where people are generally healthy and people in my practice think hard about bringing their children up in the best possible way. They mostly cook from scratch and never give their children sugar or so they think….
They forget that breakfast cereals, toast and toppings, orange juice, brown bread, wholewheat pasta and rice all break down to sugar in the body. Not forgetting the “occasional” sugary treats.
People who have changed over to a low sugar lifestyle for their children experience better behaviour, better concentration, and even better sleep. A head teacher I spoke to told me that the behaviour at his school even improved when they removed the vending machines.
