What is Sugar Doing to Kids? Focus on Albany Asks Quantum Vegan and Barbara Swanson

Posted by:

Last Friday (February 12th), I returned to the Focus on Albany show along with author and consultant Barbara Swanson to chat with host Cynthia Pooler about the harmful effects of refined sugar consumption on children. Barbara Swanson has appeared on the show previously to discuss the health implications of sugar in general, and it was a pleasure to be able to share air time with her and offer valuable information for parents, teachers and others who work with children.

You can listen to the show here:

We managed to fit a lot into a half-hour episode! Some questions that were addressed include:

  • Just what does sugar do to kids?
  • Why does sugar seem to be so addictive?
  • Is sugar responsible for childhood hyperactivity?
  • What factors are affecting families’ abilities to enjoy nourishing foods?
  • What does it feel like to “break free” from sugar?

Barbara and I will be back on Focus on Albany in the future to address even more about this and other issues raised during the show. If there are any questions you’d like us to answer, please share them in the comments!

You can connect with Barbara Swanson on Facebook and find Focus on Albany on Blog Talk Radio, Facebook, Twitter and iTunes. And of course, you can always follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram!
