Sugar Rush

I have a hard time believing all these studies I keep reading that sugar doesn't actually make kids hyper. I gave Isla an ice cream cone after dinner tonight, and she spent the next two hours acting like she was part monkey.

Mary - these studies are done by the same morons that tell you all sorts of junk is "okay for human consumption." Any mother can tell you: Sugar makes children hyper. I just started withdrawal from sugar, dairy & wheat - will be interesting to see what's on the other side!

SO glad you're blogging again! I love your posts and I miss you!

I always wonder about sugar, too! Serafina gets crazy after eating sugar and Jacinta cannot eat dairy foods because she gets too hyper, prehaps from the lactose. I am certain she would be well on her way to an ADHD diagnosis if we hadn't removed dairy from her diet when she was a toddler.

Hope all is well! You have been on my mind all day, so I thought I would stop by and see how you are doing.

Agreed..I try to drastically limit my whole families sugar intake- too much has been shown to cause all kinds of health problems!
