I'm super-busy today, so you just get a quick fact that blows. my. freaking. mind.

This is from a research proposal I'm editing at work:

"The most recent data from NHANES on 2 to 18 year olds show that nearly 40% of total energy consumed is in the form of added sugar..."


Not something with actual nutritional value but ADDED SUGAR.

More info, summarized by the CDC, is here:

My mind. is. blown.

    So much food has added sugar these days. It's not just "junk food." Things like tomato sauce, juices, yogurt, frozen meals, frozen berries, etc.
