Is it ok if I add sugar in my two months baby milk....?

Why??: Breast milk or formula has the proper balance of nutritional elements for proper growth. That includes sugars, fats, protein and other carbs.

How safe is adding malted milk (Horlicks) to my son's milk? He usually takes his milk plain without sugar. He'll be 3 this May. Does he need that? Thks

Why start now?: If your son drinks plain white milk already without additives, it's best to leave it that way. Malted milk powder has little nutritional value and adds excess sugar to his diet. Besides, once you start sweetening it, you might not be able to get him to take plain milk again! ...Read more

How much sugar I could give to my 8 months old baby. As in milk, curd, and in other things. In one day?

How much sugar I could give to my 8 months old baby. As in milk, curd, and in other things. In one day?

In the U.S., it is: Recommended not to give sugary foods & liquids, as no child needs extra sugar.. From 6 months on, they develop a preference for it, just like they develop bad sleep-onset habits like falling asleep on mom's lap or with the last sip of milk in their mouths, which can cause erupting teeth to decay. Wipe out his mouth before putting him in his crib drowsy, but awake. Give veggie & meat purées 1st. ...Read more

Is sugar and milk are cancer feeders?

Is sugar and milk are cancer feeders?

Wrong?: As an oncologist, I get asked this question all the time. In my opinion, it's the wrong question to be asking. Even cancer cells, while abnormal, still retain most features of normal cells, so trying to deprive your body of sugar or milk isn't an effective strategy to fight the cancer. A certified cancer program will have a nutritionist on staff to help determine what diet is best for you. ...Read more
