KIDS AND SUGAR
“According to SugarScience, a group of experts at UCSF who study the impact of sugar on health, the average American adult consumes about 19.5 teaspoons (82 grams) a day, or 66 pounds a year.
The problem is even worse for kids and teens, who get 16 percent of their total calories from added sugars.
And, according to a recent study, even some babies are consuming added sugar that exceeds the recommended amount for an adult. The researchers found that 99 percent of babies just 12 to 18 months old consumed over seven teaspoons of sugar a day—more than the amount in a Snickers bar!
This is insane.
Countless studies have shown that excess sugar intake contributes to obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and many other modern chronic conditions.
There are many reasons that babies and kids are eating this much sugar. Money is one of them. Big Food spends millions of dollars a year convincing parents to buy sugar-sweetened cereals, snacks, and other packaged foods that are loaded with sugar.
But I’ve also noticed that there’s a pervasive idea in American culture that kids are somehow entitled to eat sugar. Whether it’s cotton candy at a fair, ice cream on a hot day, juice boxes in school lunches, sodas at the movies, or Froot Loops for breakfast, sugar seems to be woven into the fabric of what is now considered to be a “normal” American childhood. (Of course, the same is true for the UK, Australia, and the rest of the developed—and increasingly, the developing—world.) The mentality seems to be that restricting our kids’ sugar intake is akin to robbing them of their childhood. I’ve heard (and overheard) parents say as much on several occasions.
Fusion Spice traces the history back to the origin of its USP dish Nalli Nihari since this is the One delightful and decadent Mughalai dish we can't get over : Nalli Nihari. ‘Nihari' originates from the Arabic word "Nahar" which means "morning". But some mornings taste better at dawn, Nalli Nihari all day everyday.
