The milk snacks to the test
The milk snacks mean for many parents a great time savings. It must not be prepared and lengthy discussions about sense and nonsense of a carrot fall away immediately. But ….!
The snacks included, according to test report, too much fat and sugar. The calcium content is entirely sufficient, but almost every dairy snack is a calorie bomb. And too much fat is a problem. A large proportion of our children is overweight, moves too little and takes a higher health risk. This is now not alone in the children''s milk snacks. French and Co. do the rest.
Sugar in the snacks with up to 24% (total sugar) is included, does not alone thick, but a higher caries risk.
Another point of criticism of the Sifting Usenet is the fruit content of snacks, the extra milk or fruit contain. Here you can search the earth Berry. Because it is usually a yogurt with fruit. “And must be only 3.5% fruit included. According to Sifting Usenet fruit contains thus a jumbo or a dwarf fruit (50 grams each) just a strawberry. The taste is chemistry.
Children dairy snacks are not as healthy as the advertising promises. The advertising of the manufacturers are as appetizing as the taste of their products, but unfortunately, mostly just worthless. It is with "valuable elements", "necessary vitamins" and the "healthy glucose" advertised. Vitamins are self-evident, the building blocks in fruit and cereal rich and the glucose in no way particularly valuable.
If you are on your child''s healthy diet eighth want to give you fruit, cereal and milk. That is usually cheaper and delivers everything your child needs. Children''s snacks are milk sweets - no more and no less. And the sugar content is from dental view as questionable.
