A mother has come under fire after revealing on TV that she doesn’t let her children have any sugar – not even birthday cake
One mother has spoken out about the dangers of children consuming sugar, during a debate on Good Morning Britain about obesity.
Nutritionist, Tonia Buxton, appeared on the show where she revealed that her own children were banned from eating sugary foods.
She went on to say that they weren’t even allowed to enjoy a slice of birthday cake at a party, shares The Mirror.
The mother-of-four argued that sweets are as addictive as cocaine and would only leave youngsters craving another “hit”.
She said: “Sugar has the same effect on the brain as cocaine. It’s a hit and once [children] have it, they go crazy, they’re running around. Then they come down and they want more.
“You’re better off not having any, and then having something that’s better for you.”
Tonia argued that in today’s society people no longer need to eat sugary foods to survive, as there were so many other healthy options.
Mom says – As with anything, moderation is the key!
