Sugar intakes and mood swings in infants
Possible cause of mood swing and spark of sudden crankiness is too much sugar in your child diet.
Sugar affects on behaviour and cognition instincts in children:
It is believed that one of the causes of attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder in children may be the sugar in their diet. Many children with these symptoms have an overwhelming urge to eat high GI - “glycemic index” foods, which leads to hypoglycemia - high blood sugar condition.
All high (GI) foods cause rapid increases in blood sugar levels, resulting in temporary energy rushes and hyperactivity. This inevitably leads to irritability, sleep problems, and lack of concentration.
Sugar is the cause of a rapid drop in blood glucose:
Instability of blood sugar level often lead to mood swings, fatigue, headaches, and the need (desire) to take even more and more sugar. This need forms a vicious circle of addiction, in which each new sugar intake makes child temporarily feel better, but after a while, he feels an urgent need for sugar intake, again and again.
However, those who consume little sugar claim that they rarely (if ever) feel the need for sweets and are full of energy and emotional stability
