Perhaps most troubling: Children ages 9 to 18 actually consume more sugar than adults, and even children between the ages of 4 and 8 get about 21 teaspoons of sugar per day. While the recommended intake varies a bit depending on who's setting the guideline, kids are consuming more sugar than is healthy.
Desserts, soft drinks and fruit-flavored drinks are among the main sources of added sugar for kids.
Most of the sugar kids get through their diet should come from naturally occurring sugars in foods -- such as those found in plain milk and fruits -- and not added sugars.
Added sugars can be listed under many names:
Remember that any word that ends in "ose," or any type of syrup, fruit juice concentrate, molasses, honey or corn sweetener are all sugar.
