Sugar: Should We Stop It Now Or Wait For The Sour End? by Hearme(m): 7:30pm On Apr 06, 2018
Children love sweet things. Almost every child gets excited when they hear that something sweet is coming their way. Children do not possess the information or judgment to know that eating sweet things may be enjoyable but excessive sugar consumption is not good for their health. Unfortunately, many adults are aware of all the information available about the dangers of excessive sugar consumption but have not changed the way that they consume sugar.

Free sugars is so ubiquitous in foods and drinks that avoiding excessive sugar consumption cannot happen unconsciously. It takes vigilance and care to monitor what is being consumed daily to be able to achieve healthy levels of sugar consumption. With education and good discipline, over time, the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommended limit for daily free sugar intake can be achieved.

This fight back on sugar intake is not as optional as it may appear because the rate of obesity-related illnesses is on the rise and excessive sugar is implicated in the rise of obesity. One mark of a responsible generation is how well they set up the next generation to succeed. As one of the most informed generations of all time, it will be criminal if we do not intervene to save the next generation from obesity-related illnesses. This edition of First Class Health provides a good insight into the damage that excessive sugar intake can cause and how changes in lifestyle can avert ill health. The one message that comes through clearly is that the story needs to be rewritten; sugar intake has to be reduced to healthy levels as there is nothing sweet about excessive sugar consumption

The rate at which children consume sugar is alarming.
