A dialectic on the new USDA no ‘Added Sugar’ recommendations.

I can make a choice to feed my toddler ‘added sugar’ when it comes to food. Now I know that ‘no’ amount is good.

I do not have a choice if I can’t breastfeed my baby, I need to choose formula. Now I know that I’m hurting their long term health.

Rather than bucketing the only substitute to breast milk into a ‘not good’ category maybe we should be asking how we make them better — why is Corn Syrup still allowed in formula for healthy term infants? Why is DHA not mandatory?
