What does sugar do to children? What’s sugar hyperactivity? What’s a normal sugar levels for children? – I don’t know.

What I do know is when one eats carbohydrates (sugars), the blood sugar rises and our bodies release insulin. For children who are sugar sensitive, this careful balance of food and fuel is disrupted. Blood sugar rises more quickly and reaches higher levels than normal. As result, a greater amount of insulin is released, and sugar is absorbed more quickly into the cells. This creates that “sugar high”. And it subsequently creates a crash—defined by feelings of exhaustion, spaciness, and irritability.
