Processed foods have been linked to obesity, particularly the high sugar content of our diets. In addition, sugars have been linked to the development of diabetes, hypertension, and fatty liver disease. Conflicting information on sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners makes giving accurate advice to parents difficult for pediatricians. This session will provide evidence on the role of food processing, including the use of sweeteners, in the development of obesity and chronic metabolic disease, and provide pediatricians with information that serves as a basis for accurate advice to parents and children.
