My MIL once told me she would never butt into a parenting issue. Today she says that I feed to much sugar, but my daughter had only ate breakfast, a waffle, and a bowl of cereal. She runs around a lot because she's excited, she's 2 what does she expect? Frustrating!
BTW she doesn't use syrup yet, so don't go there with the sugar!

Ladies I would say most of those MIL mean well, if it aggravates you, just smile and nod then do what you think it is best.

Sugar lifts you up to later drop you down. It makes you hyper, and then tired. It gives energy (why athletes will carbo-load). So, she runs around a lot because she's on a sugar-high. She will likely crash later, often accompanied by whining, tears, melt-downs, etc, because when a sugar overload drops you, it drops you hard.
And Yes, MIL has a very good point. She's not really butting into a parenting issue, but more likely she thinks that you must not know the difference between good nutrition and poor nutrition. I understand.
