No added sugar for babies, US advisory panel recommends
One of the key messages in the US Dietary Guidelines Scientific Report for ages 0-2 years is no amount of added sugar is OK for a baby’s development. “Avoid foods and beverages with added sugars during the first 2 years of life,” the committee stated. So, the new motto for parents when it comes to feeding babies from birth until 2 years of age is Every bite counts. “Nutritional exposures during the first 1,000 days of life not only contribute to long-term health but also help shape taste preferences and food choices.” By Sandee LaMotte, CNN Health.
