The risks of excess sugar...

were featured widely in the news today. I liked this quote -

Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Ottawa, Canada, Yoni Freedhoff; “Not only has added sugar found its way into virtually everything we eat, but worse still, the use of sugar as a means to pacify, entertain and reward children has become normalized to the point that questioning our current sugary status quo often inspires anger and outrage.
“We need to re-relegate sugar to the role of occasional treat rather than its current role of everyday, anytime, crutch”.

Hmm. Will I be deeply unpopular if I only put out oatcakes, cheese and apple whilst hosting my next play date?
