Should We Really Be That Scared of High-Fructose Corn Syrup

by Corey Carter

Our twin boys just turned 2 and still drink milk 3 times a day.   About a year ago, we made the mistake of mixing strawberry syrup in with their milk to encourage them to drink it.  In my opinion, a huge mistake because now they won't drink milk without it.  Oooops. 

We would like to get them off of this habit, but it hasn't been easy.  We've looked for Organic Strawberry Syrup and can only find it on Amazon - and it's very expensive. 

So we asked ourselves - what is the big deal with Strawberry Syrup, like why is it so bad?  High-Fructose Corn Syrup.  Ohhhhkay...so what's bad about that??  

"Well, I've heard it's not good for you."

Why?   Hmmmmm...not sure...
