    I think it combination of a few things. No particular order

    * more hidden sugar in more things. In the olden days we added sugar to things made our own stuff so we could see the sugar in stuff.

    *becoming a society that is more reliant on pre prepared/just ad X ingredient sauces/mixes.
    * a huge range of pkt snack that weren't available back than.

    *general people and medical professionals becoming more aware of allergies and in tolerances and hyperactive

    *our bodies not having a built up tolerance to sugar etc..

    I'm really not sure del.

    I suspect you could be right that a lack of exposure to these 'treat' foods occasionally might send a clean eating child into overload if they have something containing sugar or additives.

    I recall a friend of mine who was clean eating would get really sick if she ate what a lot of people would deem a 'normal' meal.

    I miss the simpler times when we grew up

    Yes im with moxy on the intollerance thing.

    Our environment of all indoors and no play is another huge impact. Less 'fresh' air and exposure to what was once nature and more 'lock in' with chemicals

    Oh I couldn't agree more. But not just when we grew up but when I had DS1 - it was no where near as stressful

    I don't think it's necessarily sugar.

    More a combination of additives and our current way of life- life is much busier now than when I was growing up, so there is less time for tolerance.
    There is also less time to take your kids aside and explain why their behaviour is not ok, and then bring them back- now we just take them home, which can be effective as a preventer but doesn't actually teach them to modify behaviour themselves.

    Personal experience only. I don't think it's the sugar but more the additives. My kids are fine on homemade custard with sugar in it but give them custard made with custard powder (thanks grandma!) and they are feral.

    many thoughts come to my mind. without wanting to be hit over the head, I wonder about the increase in the number and mixture of vaccines. I am not against vaccines, but I think the number and combinations have changed over the last 30 yrs.?? when I was raising children, I came across two families with adhd children, that was all. now it seems every second child has some sort of problem. and many of those children don't just have one or the other, but a whole spectrum of issues. I admit I get very confused. I understand many people do get a benefit from reducing the sugars and additives, and also some children seem to grow out of it ?? I don't know what might be a cause of the issues, but I do wonder if it is a case of people jumping on a bandwagon, and over diagnosing, or if we really are poisoning ourselves. no doubt the amount of hidden sugar is the biggest culprit. marie.

    Ok so I'll revise my statement.

    Do you think the increase in hyperactive behaviour is bc kids these days have more obsessively healthy diets 5 and under so when they have additives their body can't handle it?

    Nope. We aren't health nuts and it still affects our kids. I think it's to do with all the other crap we eat and are surrounded by.
