I had no idea how much high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) could affect how we feel and our behavior. Or how ubiquitous it is in our food!
I had HFCS all the time, before pregnancy. But, after all of our son's food intolerances and nursing, I had so many benefits from not eating it. I know our son is much more keyed up when he consumes HFCS. We've been able to find many preferable products which do not contain HFCS, such as popsicles, juice, cereal, beverages, candy, condiments, cookies, cakes, pastries, cough syrups, crackers, beverage mixes, supplements, frozen foods, ice cream, jelly, syrup, salad dressings, sauces, snacks, soups, honey, canned foods.
