Moms, don’t let your kids grow up to be soda drinkers

Posted on Updated on


Want to have and immediate positive impact on your kid’s health? Don’t let them drink soda or fruit juice. Yes, that’s right, fruit juice. Juice is pretty much just soda without caffeine. For instance, Motts 100% apple juice contains 28 grams of sugar per 8oz glass. A can of soda is about 40-50 grams. That’s about 14 teaspoons of sugar in a single can. And it doesn’t even make you feel full.

Our bodies are not meant to ingest sugar in this form. In nature, the absorbtion of sugar from fruit is blunted by the fibre. Without the fibre, insulin levels skyrocket. Over years, chronically high insulin levels lead to obesity, and eventually “Syndrome X”; a systemic failure as a result of insulin resistance.

The best breakfast for kids is a whole grain cereal with whole milk. No juice, just water. Teach them when they’re young and it’ll be easy for them when they’re adults.

    For anyone who disagrees with this commentary, Magus and I can post photos of our near 40 year old stomachs, full of whole milk and Heineken:

    Flatter than almost any 14-22 year old you meet these days, yet people still want to argue the point.

    Don’t drink sugar!!

    Get it?

    Keep it up, America, and Magus and I will keep stealing all the hot chicks while you fatties sit around watching porn, waiting to die of heart attacks at 49…

    “You guys are too fanatic, it’s just a soda…”

    Sure.

    Causes osteoporosis in men & women, too!
