Does eating too many sweets cause diabetes?
Don't be worried. Sugary treats don’t boost the risk of developing Type 1. So if your child has just been diagnosed, rest assured that it wasn’t because you let them gobble down too many goodies. But this doesn’t mean that sugar gets the thumbs-up. Eating too many sweets can make you fat and obesity is linked to Type 2 diabetes, a similar condition that often strikes later in life. Life can be sweet, but you can also have too much of a good thing. Teach your children to strike the right balance.
