We’ve been studying nutrition at our house this past month. The kids learned how to determine how much of which food group they need to eat at each meal to be healthy by using the new My Plate USDA guidelines. My seven year old son was quick to point out that the My Plate guidelines left out his favorite food group – sugar. And since it’s the holiday season, his sweet tooth is on high alert!
This lack of sugar in the recommended daily diet caused us to do some research. Are there any dietary guidelines for sugar? We all know too much sugar isn’t good for us, but…
Just how much sugar is too much?
Join me at The Happy Housewife as I share lots of sugar consumption information and a fun project you can do with your kids.
