Exclamation Infant Formulas Loaded with Corn syrup and Sugar

Information about some unhealthy ingredients in store bought infant formulas...

Top baby formula brands sold in stores contain alarmingly high levels of corn syrup and sugar. In light of rising rates of childhood obesity and diabetes, parents need to read labels carefully to protect their children's health.

Consumption of large quantities of sugar and high fructose corn syrup have been linked to behavioral disorders such as ADD as well as other issues such as anxiety, daytime drowsiness and nighttime insomnia.

Feeding your baby sugar and corn syrup also increases your child's risk for a wide spectrum of other health problems ranging from dental cavities to high triglyceride levels to nutritional deficiencies. Even the mainstream medical establishment warns of the dangers of added sugars.

Warnings issued about sugar consumption for children

The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued warnings about the health dangers of children drinking sugar-sweetened beverages such as sodas, sweetened fruit drinks and sports drinks.

Unfortunately, many parents do not realize that the most store-bought formulas they feed their infants and toddlers may pose the same health risks as a can of soda.

Most baby formula product lines offer options for cow's milk-based formula as well as soy milk for infants with lactose intolerance. Many formulas come in ready-to-feed, liquid concentrate and powdered forms. All the major baby formula brands offer options for all age groups from premature infants through toddlers, choices for children with special medical conditions, and organic product lines.

The top five ingredients listed for Similac Sensitive Formula for Fussiness and Gas are: Corn Syrup Solids, Sugar (Sucrose), Milk Protein Isolate, High Oleic Safflower Oil, Soy Oil.

This is sinful. Right at the time when the infant is developing their immune system. This is bad for the developing adrenals and pancreas. Why do the manufacturers feel the need for sweeteners at all?

If a baby can't take mother's milk, is it so bad that they can't take cow's milk or goat's milk? That's what families used to do. Of course at the time, it was easy to get raw milk.

mommysunshine is on a distinguished road

The hospitals give out free formula to send home with you and the baby. Soooo, if the mom has a hard time nursing (which is usually hard at the beginning) there is the free formula that they have. This sets things up for convenience foods. The convenience of that formula often wins out before the mother and baby develop a nursing pattern.
