The study comes at a time when one in six children and adolescents in the USA are obese.
A representative study of toddlers showed that 99% of children aged between 19 to 23 months eat over seven teaspoons of added sugar each day on average. They were all part of the 2011-2014 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), a research study. The finding came as a result of a study done on children between the ages of 6 and 23 months old.
There is no chemical difference between natural sugars in fruits, vegetables, and milk, and processed sugars. The finding showed that the amount of added sugar consumed increased with the age of a child.
Now, according to the CDC, all these pediatric illnesses are triggered by a higher added sugar consumption than normal in toddlers across the United States and the experts recommend parent to avoid feeding their children with products that are known to contain added sugar, such as sweetened cereals, candies, sweet sodas, fruity yogurts, and so on. Children were also found to consume added sugar before the age of one. The earlier patient is introduces to high sugar consumption, the heavier the consequences he or she will face during the life.
Eating too much foods containing added sugar has been associated with a number of health problems such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and even some cancers. In a 24 hour window period, all the foods that the child was consuming was recorded. The research titled "Consumption of added sugars among US infants aged 6-23 months, 2011-2014" was presented at the American Society for Nutrition annual meeting in Boston on June 10.

Democratic lawmakers seek criminal corruption probe of EPA's Scott Pruitt
The lawmakers' letter also notes Pruitt's contact previous year with the leader of a NY nonprofit on his wife's behalf. Pruitt, in a television interview Wednesday, didn't say whether he thought he had acted inappropriately.
The added sugar included cane sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and honey.
"The easiest way to reduce added sugars in your own diet and your kids' diet is to choose foods that you know don't have them, like fresh fruits and vegetables", Herrick suggested.
Ready-to-eat cereals, bakery items, sugar-sweetened beverages, yogurt, and candy can be major sources of added sugar. That rose to 98 percent among those babies 12 to 18 months, who averaged 5.5 teaspoons of added sugar a day.
Researchers say 60 percent of children have sugar before their first birthday, and consumption rises with age. The DGA will likely be updated in the 2020-2025 edition to include young children.
