This is the mouth of American consumers filling up on refined, processed and sugar-laden chemicals.
Next to fast food restaurants and soft and sports drinks, sugar laden processed chemicals are one of my most important points of education for parents, kids and teachers. Our children and adults consume more sugar than ever,packaged up in processed and refined foods. A child should consume no more than 12 grams of added sugar per day. What does that equate to? Three teaspoons or one Tablespoon of sugar. How much sugar is in a coke? Take a guess...1 Tablespoon, 3 Tablespoons or 5 Tablespoons? If you guessed 5 you are correct!
