There is a lot of information out there that suggests children should not eat too much candy. While that is true, is there any evidence that deems they should avoid it altogether? We couldn’t find any. In fact, we found more facts that point towards candy being useful for your children. Believe it or not, eating candy while they are young could have many benefits on their life. Also, the candy industry is a staple in this country, and so we should all try to support it. The infographic highlights some of the most compelling advancements made since it first started way back in the 1800s.
Candy gives kids energy
Evidence suggests that packing a small candy bar in your child’s school lunch can help them to perform better during the afternoon. While kids are good at finding enough energy to keep themselves active, they sometimes require a boost. You don’t want to put one in there every day, but there is nothing wrong with letting them eat something sugary a couple of lunchtimes each week.
Candy helps kids avoid obesity
In a recent article from British media giant The Daily Mail, it was announced that scientists made a shocking discovery concerning candy. They found that children who consume regular small amounts of the product before they reach their teenage years are less likely to become obese in later life.
For those two reasons alone, you should think twice the next time your child can’t have their favorite candy bar. Everything is fine in moderation, and candy might not be as bad as you think.
