I came late to the closed fairy bread thread and reading it made me wonder:
Have food allergies and hyperactive behaviour from sugar increased bc it's now more picked up and noticed or bc it is actually increasing? If so, why?
When I had my nearly 12 year old, 6+ months was the introduction of solids and there was quite a few no no foods. No nuts until 12 months, no yogurt until 9 etc. Now they say 4 months and the only thing to not introduce is honey bc of botulism. My GP told me it's bc studies have shown that the late introduction of allergy foods has actually made babies more susceptible to allergies.
When I was a kid in the 80's, we ate fairy bread, lollies from the corner store, but had vegies for dinner and walked and rode everywhere. I honestly don't remember this issue of the smallest amount of sugar sending a child nuts. Like ever. Is it bc people have become so obsessive with food with their kids that the lack of non perfect food means when they do have their body can't handle it?
Discuss, but be nice. No closed threads this time M'Kay
