Because there is a lot going on in the media at the moment about sugar intake amongst children and how parents ought to keep on a close eye on their child’s sugar consumption, there has been fear about children eating sweets at all.
That said, in moderation, the odd sweet can be enjoyed by children. After all, as long as they’re not consuming too many, by not eradicating them at all from your child’s diet. Children are arguably more likely to form a healthy relationship with “unhealthy” foods and will be able to limit their intake as a teenager and adult.
