What would make a 3 yr old fall asleep after eating sweets?

Easter my 3 yr old got into the easter candy without anyone knowing it, we found out when she fell asleep on the couch not long after. then the other day my Dh gave her a sugary soft drink and she did the same thing not long after drinking it. he didn't give her all of it, just about a 1/4 of a 16 oz bottle.

when have told everyone to not give her sweets so we can monitor her intake easier.

  • Hypoglycemia and a sugar crash? Maybe. Not necessarily. But that's pretty much what happens to me when I eat, for example, a pancake or french toast breakfast that doesn't include some protein.
