I am finding with my foster kids any candy sets them over the edge. First time it was cake/icecream and they were crazy and bouncing in beds till 1 am with no signs of sleep even though most kids would have been out. The last few times they act out in anger. Every time they have candy it is some kind of violence.
The one day they were acting out and I thought wow maybe it isn't the candy but then found they discovered a secret stash and ate it. There mom sees them 1 hour a week and gives them nothing but candy/junk. So when they get home they are not able to be controlled.
My child is unable to deal with them anymore. I want to still help them but not sure if the sugar is a concidence or if someone has experiencec or knows about this.

I couldn't get to the link. Despite all of the experience of moms that sugar makes kids hyper, scientific studies conclude that it doesn't.

Oops, one of the links above is a chart on how much formula to feed a baby. I check. Here is the right one.
