How much sugar?!

Ok so I go to the grocery store and see Gerber Yogurt Fruit Drops. Sounds healthy huh. Well I wait until I get home and look at the label. In a 7g serving there is 4g of sugar! I may have well just given my baby some sugar cubes to chew on. I was stunned. I know the kid yogurts have a ton of sugar but baby yogurt. Holy Cow! Lesson learned is to read the label before you leave the store. My husband said they look like Lucky Charms Marshmallows.

It's kind of pathetic actually how much sugar is in almost all baby and toddler snacks! Start the addiction young I guess :(

Me either. Between the sugar and sodium content of all those brands, I go crazy.

I hate that there is so much sugar in everything! You pretty much have to make all your own food to avoid all sugar.
