Remember this previous post of mine? I talk about sugar intake. Some products do not mention the amount of sugar, but dont be trick, u can actually know the amount of sugar by looking at the level of carbohydrate. The higher the carbohydrate, the higher the sugar. And some use a substitute name of sugar; corn syrup solid, glucose syrup solid and sucrose. These are all the same; SUGAR.
When you hear of coca-cola, I am sure most of you know that a can of coke contains a lot of sugar. And to my shocking knowledge, I found out that even babies’ powdered milk could also contains a lot of sugar! Yes this can be shocking news to know the amount of sugar we feed our babies and imagine our babies drink 5 – 6 bottle of milk daily! And we often wonder why our child is so active, never ending energy. And we also real cute chubby babies. Yes of coz they are cute, feel like pinching their big thigh..geram. But have u ever wonder, the baby could be obese due to too much sugar intake? Of coz some say…”oh she/he has not start on solid food yet, just milk”. And have u actually taste your child’s milk? Give it a try, it is indeed sweet!
