  • Maybe. Soy is an estrogen based plant so your boys could be getting extra estrogen. Soy in this country is so genetically modified it's not even funny.

  • I always heard that soy is actually better for you than milk products. I drink it because I am lactose intolerant. What's making kids chubby is our food choices. We only should consume about 20 grams of sugar a day. Most of us consume that much in one product. I bought the book The Belly Fat Cure. It's one of the most interesting books I have ever read. Our food is what is creating that belly on everyone you see. It's really sad.

  • no.... the boys have boobs bc they are overweight. and if the kids are overweight try giving them water to drink instead of soy beverages.

  • The boys boobies? I have never seen boys with boobies. Unless you mean over weight boys. I never heard it being from soy..Interesting.

  • Considering how few people over use it, or use it at all... no. You might be mistaking it for HFCS. Just a thought... You know, the crap that is in EVERYTHING.

  • I wouldn't think it would be the Soy, maybe you could ask your pediatrician?

  • are you using a flavored soy with lots of sugar?
    watch the overall sugar consumption and processed foods in general. increase brown carbs and veggies!
