Study: Kids Who Eat Salty Foods Drink Sugary Drinks
Doctors looking for ways to slow the rising rate of childhood obesity are focusing on one particular culprit: sugary drinks. And a new study in the journal Pediatrics says the way to cut back on these drinks may be to watch what kids eat.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig explains:
Cutting salt may be the key to cutting sugar. Researchers at Australia’s Deakin University finding kids who tend to go for sugary drinks also consume nearly one gram of salt per day more than kids who choose unsweetened beverages.
(Harwood) “Insult on top of injury, because now they’re getting these calorie-filled beverages that are increasing their weight.”
Cleveland Clinic dietitian Tara Harwood suggests removing some of kids’ favorite foods.
(Harwood) “Potato chips, french fries. Not a lot of people realize cheese contains a lot of sodium, so cutting out the pizza.”
…Replacing them with fruits and veggies with natural sugars, and proteins like chicken and eggs.
