Sugar is the sweet essence children often crave, providing instant energy for their play-filled moments.
Though it offers quick energy, moderation is key. Excessive sugar can lead to dental issues and unhealthy weight gain. Teaching children about balanced sugar intake is crucial.
Beyond candies, sugar is in fruits, pastries, and many processed foods. Parents should opt for natural sugar sources like fruits, but be aware of fruit allergies like strawberries, and seek alternatives like apples or bananas.
