Sugar Sugar

(3 years, 7 months)

Dear Trevor,

Jane Broady writes a column in the The New York Times about food and health. In yesterday’s column she wrote that the average teenage boy consumes 34 teaspoons of sugar a day, and a girl consumes 24 teaspoons. That’s amazing.

So in an effort to get ahead of the curve I have told you the story and cut out your added sugar diet. That means no sodas, or cereals with added sugars. If the sugar’s natural to the product, that’s okay.

So I’m standing at the counter putting sugar in my coffee and you say, You’ve got to cut out the sugar, Dad.

Love, Daddy
