It is the excessive added sugars in some foods including many growing up milk powders that are considered unhealthy. Studies show the excessive intake of added sugars is a potential source of excess calories, which can contribute to the development of obesity and chronic disease such as diabetes, CHO and dental caries – even in young children.
