#8 Sugar Will Spoil Your Kids

Sugar is bad, yes, but there is a reasonable explanation to not using it in excess quantities. Consuming high-sugar foods triggers the production of acids that erode the teeth enamel – the hard outer covering of the teeth. However, it doesn’t spoil your kid as far as table manners are concerned.
