Avoiding products with processed sugar, such as sodas and candy is a good start but did you know even products like organic chocolate milk contain high amounts of sugar which leads to behavioral problems.

Please be mindful of what you give your child to eat and drink, creating good nutrition habits needs to begin at a young age and continue throughout school years. If you focus on feeding your children better you will inevitably begin to eat healthier yourself as the foods you keep in your home will be foods you want your children to eat.
Keeping products like sweets, chips, soda and candy off the shopping list and out of the home means when you do decide to have a treat it will truly be a treat and not something regularly kept in your home.
