Carbohydrates are no doubt an easily consumed and favorite food group of kids all ages. However, eating too many carbohydrates, the wrong type and eliminating other food groups as a result, may cause health problems such as high triglycerides, elevated blood sugar, HgA1C levels and obesity, to name just a few. All carbohydrates break down into sugar as they are eaten and digested. There are two different types of carbohydrates: Complex and Simple. Most “simple” sugars are considered concentrated sweets. Most simple carbohydrates cause a quick increase in blood sugar. However, complex carbohydrates rich in nutrients and fiber are necessary for proper growth and development, energy, hormone balance and mental acuity.
