Natural Sweeteners as Alternative To Ordinary Sugar
Children love sweet foods, and every parent likes to delight their kids with special treats. But too much sugar depresses the immune system for Autistic children and spikes imbalances that also affect behavior, attention, and learning.
At Holmeside, we advise parents to use natural sweeteners such as Stevia leaf powder, instead of ordinary sugars for children with strong symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to reduce the associated unrest and stress.
