Babies and children under 2 years of age should not receive any food containing added sugar, and larger children should limit the consumption of such foods to 100 calories per day. This is said in a statement by the American Heart Association (AHA).

This means less than 6 teaspoons of this type of food daily for children aged 2 to 18 years. Children should limit it to two-thirds of the amount of foods added with added sugar, especially soft drinks. At present, children and adolescents in America receive an average equivalent of 19 teaspoons of sugar per day.

Getting high-sugar quick nourishments in youth expands the dangers of sicknesses of the cardiovascular framework, weight, and hypertension, as per the examination.

From July 2019, the amount of added sugar in food in the United States will need to be listed in the labels.
