A couple of weeks ago we shared some important points from a recent CDC data brief on added sugars consumption by children and adolescents. If you’ve been a reader of Sip & Savor for a while, you know we love to report on data and analyses that debunk some of the myths that are out there about our products and their ingredients. An example? Sugar-sweetened beverages are the largest source of added sugars calories in the diets of today’s youth. Simply not true, as confirmed in this CDC report.
To shine some light on this issue, we decided to share a post on the “Motherlode” blog from yesterday’s New York Times. Lead blogger KJ Dell’Antonia, who writes about personal, cultural and political aspects of family life, counters some common sugar consumption myths – with data from the CDC report. We hope you’ll take a moment to read it.
