Sugar and juices

Tugboat | Sep 16, 2005 08:38 AM

I don't want to start a big debate about how much sugar is the food we eat.

This question is for those that may have an insight into chemistry and nutrition.

My wife and I have a soon to be 5 year old.

He eats well (what we cook not just nuggets and fries) and is a very adventurous eater.

But we now have a household edict that there is to be no more juice around.

I am not talking about fresh orange juice. We also make killer lemon and limeade where we can control the sugar.

But my son now has a taste for Gatorade.

Are the sugars in it as bad as the others we are trying to avoid?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
