Many children and adults like to each chocolates.
Chocolates are now presented as gifts during festive seasons, especially during Christmas.
Taking chocolate once in a while may be Ok.
However,it is good to know a couple of ingredients in chocolates are not positive contributors to good health.
Theobromine (caffeine-related substance): gives power to certain carcinogens in human cells that damage DNA.
Refined white sugar: all the fibre, vitamins, minerals are removed. It makes people fat because it supplies only empty, low quality calories and excessive carbohydrates that are converted to fat. When we eat foods high in sugars, the body must have additional food to get the nutrients it needs. This causes us to overeat. This tends to add weight. More over, refined sugar in food, drink and candy ferments in the bidy system, causing the formation of acetic acid, carbonate acid and alcohol.
Children taking chocolates are likely to quarrel after some times.
What can we do?
The eating habit that helps to eliminate the craving for sweets more than anything else is the consumption of fruits.
