toddlers + babies getting too much sugar!

A new study in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that 61% of infants and almost all toddlers (98 %) consume added sugars in their average daily diets, primarily in the form of flavored yogurts (infants) and fruit drinks (toddlers). "Our study, which is the first to look at trends in added sugars consumption by infants and toddlers, documents that most infants and toddlers consume added sugars. This has important public health implications since previous research has shown that eating patterns established early in life shape later eating patterns," explained lead investigator Kirsten A. Herrick, Ph.D., National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. cnn + eurekalert
