Milk Chocolate For Children, Healthy?
Milk chocolate is higher in sugar content and unnecessary calories than plain milk. But all the milk, either sense or not is packed with nutritional content. Over the development period, low-fat chocolate milk was already emerging.
One cup low-fat milk contains about 100 calories and 13 grams of sugar (in the form of lactose, the sugar found naturally in milk) and about 300 milligrams of calcium (about 25 percent of the daily needs of children) and vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin B , and minerals such as potassium and phosphorus.
The same size also exist in low-fat chocolate milk contains about 160 calories and 25 grams of sugar (the amount of increase comes from added sugar), with levels of vitamins and minerals that sebanding.Sebuah study from Emory University found the addition of sugar to 20 percent of adolescents in daily calories. "Those with the highest sugar intake, low levels of cholesterol" good "HDL cholesterol and high levels of" bad "LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and high risk of heart disease and diabetes later in life. A lot of sugar intake for adolescents who came from sugary drinks," writes the researcher.
For this chocolate milk, nutrition expert Joy Bauer also do not recommend kids drink chocolate milk in schools. The reason, added sugar provides extra calories that are not necessary when children are struggling with their weight and unhealthy food.
