I was so excited to see this interview with Katie Couric discussing the danger with sugar consumption in the United States. Hopefully as more people become aware of the problems associated with sugar, we will see a change in behaviors. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if candy was not used as a reward for kids at church, school, sports programs, etc? One piece of candy may not seem to be too bad, but one lollipop has 13.21 grams of sugar. Even if that is the only sugar a child consumes in a day, it still exceeds the WHO guidelines for children. One lollipop!
