Sugar intake of American toddlers crosses maximum amount recommended for adults
from American Society of Nutrition via The Medical News
A new study suggests children in the U.S. begin consuming added sugar at a very young age and that many toddlers' sugar intake exceeds the maximum amount recommended for adults. The study found 99 percent of a representative sample of U.S. toddlers age 19-23 months consumed an average of just over 7 teaspoons of added sugar on a given day. Sixty percent of children were found to consume added sugar before age 1.
