Food and beverage companies use extra sugar and colorful marketing to reel kiddos in. All those extra calories are empty calories, leaving our children with a lack of nutrients. Added sugars make it hard for children to maintain a healthy weight and a healthy brain. Since fruits are naturally sweet, it can be easy to get children to eat them without adding sweeteners like sugar, corn syrup, and honey. Serve your kids fresh fruit rather than dried or the fruit snack version---cut pieces into funny shapes or a cool design to draw in the little ones. And remember, berries have high nutritional content and pears are low on the glycemic index. Good nutrition makes for smarter and happier kids.We want to empower you with as much health information as possible.
