If you have read my previous post or attended my seminars, you would have heard me warn about the pernicious effects of sugar in our child’s health.
Well guess what. The Sugar and sweetener industry has ramped up their contributions to fight any changes or new regulations. See below (2010) contribution.
And they are able to have an impact too….
In 2013, both General Mills and the Sugar Association weighed in on proposed lunch standards, dismissing the connection between sugar and health problems. According to the report, "the USDA adopted a weaker rule than it first proposed, limiting kids’ sugar intake at school by weight rather than by calorie as public health experts had recommended."
Unless we as parents don’t raise our voice, our kid’s health will be affected by processed food.
