All kids have to have a healthy school lunch with no sugar. Healthy school lunch sugar-free. Dr. Robert Lustig, MD. Maybe a parent of school-age child watches this interview. Maybe parent hears about excess sugar problem for the first time. What parents can do for a child to avoid excess sugar consumption? (Pediatric neuroendocrinologist, UCSF). The first thing is understand what you’re eating. The problem is you are not allowed to know what you are eating. At least here in America. Dr. Robert Lustig, MD. We have this box on the side of the package, called the Nutrition Facts label. That label is supposed to tell you what you’re eating. It does no such thing. If anything, food label actually obfuscates the information. Information that you need in order to reasonably and rationally determine whether or not this food is good for you or not. But there are many many fallacies on that nutrition facts label. Sugar is only one of the fallacies. The whole question of saturated fat is a major fallacy. People think that saturated fat is bad for them. They still think that. Even though the American Heart Association has debunked the fat hypothesis. Even though the World Health Organization has agreed that the fat hypothesis had been overblown from the beginning. Even though the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee here in America said that probably low-fat diets were not the way to go. But that information has not reached the general public. There’s a lot of fallacies that have to be debunked for people to understand. Then people can actually take charge of their lives. That’s part of my job. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. I bring real information, bona fide, scientifically vetted information to help people make rational decisions. Dr. Robert Lustig, MD. At this point what the parents can probably do is this. Parents must closely monitor what their children are eating. They should monitor the sugar content of their children’s food. Irrespective of what kind of sugar it is. Dr. Robert Lustig, MD. Absolutely. The biggest thing that parents can do to help their children is this. Parents must send their children to school with their lunch. Instead of having them eat the lunch at school. Because school lunch means cheap lunch. Cheap lunch means high carbohydrate, high sugar, low fiber. And processed foods. And processed foods, because it’s cheaper. If you want your child to eat healthy and be healthy, send them to school with his or her lunch. Healthy school lunch is sugar-free. Video interview with Dr. Robert Lustig. Parents should send children to school with home-made lunch.
