What Are We Feeding Babies To Make Them Get So Fat?

Filed under: In The News — @ September 3, 2006

You’ve read the screaming headlines recently about how obesity has even hit the most vulnerable segment of our population now–BABIES! In response, all of these health organizations are scratching their heads wondering how in the world this could happen and have called for a deeper investigation into it.

But the answer is so obvious to those of us who are on the low-carb lifestyle.

bq. Just take a look at the macronutrient ratio on that jar the next time you go to the grocery store. What you will find is a TON of carbohydrates and very little protein and fat. It is not uncommon for the carb/protein/fat ratio to be around 85/10/5 or even worse. EEEEK!!! GO SEE FOR YOURSELF! It really will open your eyes. Even worse is the ingredients list which contains so much corn syrup. All of that sugar and the obvious lack of protein and fat which is sorely needed to help growing babies develop properly is one of the reasons why I think we have seen obesity among children and even babies become so bad.
