When we think of children eating too much sugary food or drinks, we tend to associate tooth decay and obesity. What most of us don't realise is that sugar has an even worst effect of our children's brain. I'll put it simply: too much sugar on the brain affects your child's learning skills and memory.
Research on the effects of sugar has shown that a diet high on sugar lowers memory function whereas a low sugar diet increases memory function. When memory is affected so does learning.
