Are kids eating too much sugar?

Parents today are letting kids eat too much sugar. I think kids should have less sugar. First for doing chores parents are used to giving kids candy as a reward. Kids are literally addicted to eating sweets. I have been asking my friends about what chips and dips are good, Then the conversation ends with “yeah donut oreos are really good”. Kids are eating way too much sugar and that is REALLY unhealthy. I am used to my pantry being filled with chips ahoy and reeses and other unhealthy foods. I am used to me asking my friends, “Hey do you like celery” and they say, “Ewww no I like cookies”.             

Whenever I am at a restaurant my little brother always asks, “Can I get soda?” I ask that too and I regret that because it is unhealthy for my teeth. And it is because i am used to my parents giving me those kinds of foods and drinks. Kids need to eat healthier. Kids should only have at least 24 grams of sugar a day, one serving of Captain crunch has half that. Captain crunch is supposed to be a healthy kids breakfast cereal and giving kids half the amount they are supposed to have in one day is extremely unhealthy.

Our parents were used to eating healthy as kids. So why shouldn’t kids today? Kids need to have less sugar. Kids are getting more and more obese today because they are eating more sugar then they are supposed to have. I have always heard my dad telling stories of his grandma making him fried okra and salads. And my friends are telling me stories of how their mom puts oreos and snickers in their chocolate cake flavored milkshake. My dad always says “The better it tastes, The worse it is for you, The worse it tastes the better it is for you.” I agree with him

Kids need to eat less sugar if they want to stay healthier and live longer, Sure sugar is addictive but kids need to resist.

Kitkat’s moto is break time any time well no because candy is bad for you. Candy is bad for you and people should limit how much they eat.It affects your overall health and is not nutritious and may lead to diabietes. Candy is bad for teeth and gives you cavities. Candy gives you plaque and tooth decay yuck! Candy will also give you cavities then see you at the dentist.

Scientists named the calories in candy “empty calories.” That means they’re calories that come from foods without vitamins and minerals. So you need to eat things besides candy, but a lot of people also live to very old ages even if they do some things that aren’t very healthy.

Sometimes the reason a person can’t eat candy is because they have diabetes.Diabetes is when the amount of sugar in your blood gets too high.It can damage your eyes and your kidneys and slow down the blood circulation in your feet and fingers.
