Question Sugar

My orthodontist said that while i have braces i should minimize my sugar and caffiene intake in result of that my mom lets me have sugar once a week. one time i had a bottle of pop and the next day she wouldnt let me put jelly on a biscut because the jelly had sugar in it. Do u think my mom is right to minimize my sugar and caffiene intake that much? my friends have braces too and they eat sugar more often than once a week.

Yes, I think you should minimize your sugar intake. It's not good for your teeth. Too much of it, is not good for the rest of us either.

I know in our fast-food "sweet tooth" society it's hard to avoid these things. But we should try....

You can read a lot about it on the internet. Diet and nutrition seem to be hot topics these days. Too many people are having weight problems, as they get older.
