I was going to write about the humble avocado this morning, but then I came across this and I just had to share it, because this is one of the issues we are facing with kids these days. They eat more and more sugary food, not just at parties, but on an every day basis. Sugary, processed food lacking important nutrients, but not lacking in additives, colourings and preservatives. What is it doing to our kids in the instant and in the long run?
It would be interesting to see what the differences in the two groups would’ve been if the ‘healthy’ group of kids were fed even better food with more protein and good fats. Would it have been an even bigger difference in behaviour? Maybe you won’t dread having kids birthday parties if you feed them good, wholesome food instead of sugar?
Check out the five minute video clip from this British documentary on food. It’s quite interesting.
What’s your opinion on this matter?
