Here's an article from this morning's New York Times: "For An All-Organic Formula, Baby, That's Sweet!" Seems one of the top-selling organic baby formulas, Similac Organic, contains cane sugar.

Baby likey!

Baby likey that super-sweet formula, but pedes say it's bad news because it eats tooth enamel faster and might cause babies to develop a taste for sweets.

It also might cause babies guessed it!...overeat.

So, health-conscious moms and dads who pony up 30 cents more than regular Similac - because they only want the best for their babies - may actually be risking getting those babes hooked on sugar.

You won't be surprised to learn that formulas made with cane sugar (sucralose) will be banned in Europe by the end of 2009.
