Not so sweet: New sugar limits for kids announced
Kids in the United States are sweet on sugar, but a major health organization is issuing new guidelines to curb children's consumption of sugary foods and beverages. In the first of three new recommendations from the American Heart Association, a panel of health and nutrition experts suggested that children ages 2 to 18 consume no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day, according to the organization's statement published in the journal Circulation. That amount of sugar is equal to about 100 calories, or 25 grams of sugar.
