I overslept this morning and came downstairs to find that my teenage stepson had given my five-year-old a Twinkie for breakfast, since we bought a box of them at Wal-Mart last night for the sake of nostalgia. He'd eaten a Twinkie and a cupcake himself, along with a Coke and a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which is his favorite cereal. Then he wanted to bake brownies, which I allowed because it's a cold and drizzly day outside. I cut my daughter off from sweets till after supper tonight after she licked the batter spoon and had a warm brownie--I Couldn't in all fairness deny her that because the house smelled so good. My stepson isn't concerned with putting on weight because he's finally reaching a normal size and height for his age, but I told him that eating too many sweets will cause him to get pimples, which is a big concern of his at the moment. I seem to remember that from wen I was a teenager, but I wanted to check and make sure it was true. If it is, are there any Web sites I can show him to prove it?
Sorry to burst your bubble there mama, but sweets do NOT cause acne. You can still argue that too much is bad for you in general, so he can be happy that he's had his share of junk food for 1 day. :p

They don't cause it however, certain foods can trigger certain actions in your body.
