Sugar Is Killing Us

I saw this today and thought it was a great and simple way to explain why sugar and high fructose corn syrup are so bad for you. If you start to read labels you will notice they throw sugar in just about everything. I have even found it in pickles.
 My kids are funny because they will turn down something like a cookie because it isn't good for them, but then they'll eat 5 bowls of ice cream. I plan on showing this to them during school in hopes that they'll understand and eventually want to avoid that stuff.

  1. Awesome video! Totally going to show this to my kids tonight! They haven't ever really been obsessed about junk food, and we don't have any in our house, so they don't really get it, unless it is a special occasion, but Halloween is right around the corner, right?! Yeah, I think we will use this video to get the kids excited about the Switch Witch again this year! :) (a friendly witch that only eats candy, so they pick 3 of their favorite treats and leave the rest out for her at night, and she will replace the candy with a little toy)
