If you are like most Americans, your family eats a lot of processed baked goods including; breads, cookies, muffins, cakes, granola bars, snack bars, fruit bars, biscuits, scones, coffee cake, cereal, pancakes, pop tarts, waffles, crepes, desserts, crackers and/or pizza dough to name a few.
99% of the above items if purchased from a store are made with hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, white flour (empty calories), food coloring, and are laden with chemicals.
At age 5-8 having high blood pressure, being obese or having heart problems? Do you agree there is something wrong with this picture? How can kids do well in school feeling overweight, unhealthy, sluggish and tired?
