Excessive Sodium and Sugar in Processed Food for Toddlers

Researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) analyzed sodium and sugar levels in 1,074 infant and toddler dinners, snacks, fruits, vegetables, dry cereals, juices and desserts. Not only was the processed food heavily salted and contained too much sugar, it didn’t matter whether the toddler’s meal was organic or otherwise.

Sugarjacked

It's really hard to figure out how much sugar you're eating when downing a bowl of breakfast cereal. For starters, serving sizes are usually 30 percent more than what's listed on the box. Another problem is that naturally occurring sugars and the more dangerous added sugars are lumped into one "sugar" category on the nutrition label. And let's not forget that sugar-laced cereals are legally allowed to make healthy-sounding front-of-label claim about whole-grain, fiber, and/or vitamin or mineral content without addressing the toxic levels of sugar in the products.

Sugar Bombs

“Most parents would never serve dessert for breakfast, but many children’s cereals have just as much sugar or more”.

The Sneaky World of High Fructose Corn Syrup

The consumption of HFCS increased 1000% from 1970 to 1990 according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2004. And we continue to swallow it by the mouthful.
