Isn't raw sugar or honey, OK?

Sugar is one of the most common struggles for young families. Ice cream, icing, candy, etc. are often children's favorite foods. But these are treats, not food. You can make these things healthier but the super sweet items should not be eaten frequently.

Some people use a lot of honey or maple syrup think because these are natural, so it is ok to use them. Free use, or LOTS of, is not healthy in any form. We must guard against eating too much of a good thing, lets it becomes not a good thing.

"The free use of sugar in any form tends to clog the system, and is not unfrequently a cause of disease." {CTBH 56.4}

Sugar is not really that bad for us if we just learn how to consume it properly. Our bodies need sugar but not that much.

No, sugar isn't bad. Eating too much sugar is bad.
