Help, my kids are bouncing!

  1. Every parent experiences it from time to time. The children are very busy at times, they run, scream and go on and on. In the past it would be said: 'a storm is coming'. Yes, in the children's house, but usually there is no storm. Often the cause is obvious, but we don't always realize it. It can have many causes, but very often such a moment of bouncing children comes for some time after they have had a treat with a lot of sugar such as ice cream, soda or candy.

Why do children bounce on sugar?

  1. Many a parent knows that sugar is not good for the children. Children's behavior is not often linked to sugar, but sugar in sweets is quickly absorbed into the child's bloodstream. This already starts in the mouth, while this (naturally) the sugar absorption should only happen in the intestines. For the child, sugar is pure energy and the child gets an enormous kick in this way. The influx of sugar causes the body to produce hormones, including endorphins. This hormone makes you feel happy. Shortly after the energetic storm comes the dip, when most of the sugar has been consumed. The child's body longs for a new dose of sugar and the children get sick with their behavior.

White sugar

  1. In many media you can read that sugar is the white poison. This refers to the white sugars. This sugar is refined in the Netherlands from sugar beets. During the refining of the sugar beets, pure sugar is made, so without fibers, vitamins or minerals. These types of sugars are artificial and do not occur in nature in this way. Normally, the body's sugar absorption is inhibited by the presence of fiber.

Cane sugar

  1. As an alternative reference is often made to cane sugar. Cane sugar is also refined, but this process is less sophisticated. Cane sugar still contains a small residue of fiber, but hardly any vitamins. This residue of fiber and minerals makes cane sugar a shade darker. In fact, cane sugar is better than white sugar, but absolutely not good.

Natural sugars

  1. All fruit and vegetables contain more or less sugar. These sugars are slowly released during the digestion of the food and are thus gradually absorbed by the body. When eating a peach, the sugars are in balance with the fiber, vitamins and minerals present in the peach. The body processes the sugar more slowly, but that makes the effect of the sugar longer.

Sweets wise

  1. It was once a well-known slogan: "sweets wisely, eat an apple". The campaign focused more on the teeth than on the disrupted hormone balance, but the campaign was right. Many parents in 2014 give their children candy, which is bursting with unnatural sugars and other questionable additives, such as e-substances. Many children are allergic to one or more e-substances. Fruit is probably the best alternative to the candy. Fruit provides long-lasting energy and is full of vitamins, minerals, proteins, anti-oxidants and fiber. Fruit is the best snack for children.
