Is high fructose corn syrup worse for kids than sugar?

Is high fructose corn syrup worse for kids than sugar?

No: There's been a lot of hype. The truth is, hfcs is 55% fructose and 45%glucose. Sucrose (table sugar) is about 50%fructose and 50%glucose. Glucose is used by our bodies as is. Fructose, on the other hand, requires processing by the liver to be used by the body. I recommend avoiding foods that contain a lot of either one. You get plenty of sugar in natural foods;you really don't need either one. ...Read more

Is colicaid safe to give along with omnacortil Forte? My child is on Omnacortil Forte syrup but he is having colic issue, can I give colicaid to him?

Colic: Colic occurs in infants up to about 4 months of age. The ingredients in Colicaid will not hurt your baby but have not been shown to help much either. If your baby is taking a steroid such as Omnacortil Forte (prednisolone), that illness takes precedence and I would avoid giving baby other treatments unless prescribed. Unsure if safe. ...Read more
