Parents are being encouraged to cut back on the amount of sugar they feed children in a new health campaign.

While it may be true, sugar is not the BIG enemy. They’re barking up the wrong tree… again. Because the real tree has gremlins.
The real enemies are twofold, sweeteners and HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup); i.e. sugar-free alternatives.
Sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose are far more damaging to the body than sugar.
