Can sugar really make any kid hyper?

2 doctors agree

In brief: No

There is a very popular belief that sugar makes children hyper. However, there was a very good study, years ago, that disproved the association.
The study was actually skewed towards finding that sugar would cause hyperactivity, and it did not.
