Sugar Free Kids Summit 2023
Over the past three decades, childhood obesity rates have tripled in the U.S., and today, the country has some of the highest obesity rates in the world: one out of three children are overweight or obese.
What’s even more startling is the fact there’s really only one main culprit for this rise in childhood obesity rates: sugar.
Studies have revealed that 85 percent of infants and toddlers consume added sugar every single day.
And to make matters worse, over 60% of the foods and drinks you buy from your local grocery store contain added sugar.
With so much misinformation online and on food packaging these days, it can be hard to know what foods do or do not contain added sugar…
Making it nearly impossible to know what our children should or should not be eating.
During the Sugar Free Kids Summit you'll get answers to that concern and many more.
What You'll Learn During the Sugar Free Kids Summit
Did you know that 1 soda a day increases a child’s chance of obesity by 60%? One 20-ounce bottle of soda contains as much as 17 teaspoons of sugar.

Why Attend the Sugar Free Kids Summit
Sugar is the biggest culprit contributing to the obesity epidemic. It is in almost all of our food products, which came about through a number of governmental decisions about how to subsidize the agriculture industry many years ago and any efforts to change this practice has met with powerful food lobby resistance.
Even the Michele Obama campaign against childhood obesity got hijacked by the food industry giants and turned the focus to physical activity instead of the food that children consume.
In order to protect our children, and ourselves, it is imperative that we are educated on the ways in which the food industry tricks us, how they hide this sweet poison under pseudonyms on food labels. And we need to be aware of what foods to avoid and how to find alternatives in order to protect our children and ensure a healthy future for them.
The Relationship Between Childhood Sugar Intake & Disease
The American Heart Association recommends that children consume no more than 6 teaspoons (25 grams) of added sugar per day.
Yet, the average child in the United States consumes an average of about 19 teaspoons (76 grams) of added sugar per day.
That’s over 3X the recommended daily amount!
And that’s the average…
Many children are consuming even more than 3X the recommended amount which is leading to all types of diseases that were typically uncommon in children just a few years ago, including:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Insulin Resistance
- Fatty Liver Disease
- And many more…
And the growth of these diseases in kids doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon…
Especially as sugar becomes more and more prominent in everyday foods, plus the addition of added sugar to so-called “health foods”.
The statistics are becoming more clear: Sugar is becoming the leading cause of death world-wide, and its addictive nature is something to be concerned about when raising kids.
The Relationship Between Brain Development & Sugar Intake
Does sugar cause developmental disorders in children? The research seems to indicate that it does.
Sugar has both long-term and short-term effects on your child’s brain development.
You’ve probably witnessed the short-term “sugar high” after your child eats something sugary and then you may have even noticed a quick decline (or crash) in their energy shortly after.
But what you may not be aware of is that sugar has potential long-term negative effects on your child’s brain health.
Some of these negative effects include:
- Decreased self regulation leading to behavior problems
- Reduced ability to learn
- Trouble remembering things
- Loss of brain neurons leading to impaired cognitive function
- Increased hyperactivity and mood swings (often leading to depression + anxiety)
- Dopamine imbalances which are linked to ADHD, addiction, and poor impulse control.
Yet, even though the research shows just how bad sugar is for a child’s brain development…
Most parents still continue to give their kids sugar!
Why is that?
Most parents and caregivers aren’t educated on the matter and most nutrition guidelines don’t give a clear cut answer.
Fortunately, with the right knowledge and guidance, any parent can help their child live a sugar-free life and ultimately avoid any & all developmental disorders that sugar may typically play a part in.
About Your Sugar Free Kids Summit Host – Mike Collins
Mike Collins is a former sugar addict and takes this addiction very seriously. His websites and Sugar Freedom Tribe platform have helped tens of thousands of people quit or drastically reduce sugar in their life.
For the past 33 years, he has not consumed sugar in any form – at least not intentionally. He raised two children sugar-free from the womb until they were six years old.
After this, he re-wrote the rules for kids and sugar in childhood, and the kids had zero added sugar at home and only at outside birthday parties. He believes that the most important time in childhood brain and healthy body development are those first 1,000 days between conception and two or even three years of age. As science changes, we must become aware and informed to mitigate the risk to our children around sugar.
