Baby food pouches are meant to look appetizing, wouldn’t you want to believe that the puréed mush you’re giving your kid is well… flavorful?
But what if they’re really a disguise? Like the bad guy in any episode of Scooby-Doo, this mask is hiding something truly devious. Sugar!
The Royal Society of Peadiatrics and Child Health are terrified that young children are developing sugar addictions at an early age, and it’s all because we’re giving them way too much sugar before they even have a chance to walk it off.
How much is too much? Well, these baby packets can contain almost 10g of sugar! That’s more than half what a baby should eat in one day. Our friends over at Fresh Bellies have come up with one solution, feed your kids savory and delicious foods. A simple change can make a huge difference!
We all know that eating too much sugar can cause your teeth to rot, increase your weight, and contribute to diabetes… is that the “head start” we’re trying to give our kids in life?
