Why kids LOVE sugar

I just thought this was interesting; kids crave sugar the most, or love the sweetest juices, when they’re growing the fastest. Cravings for super sweet things tends to die down around 16, around the age that most of us significantly slow or even stop growing.

Very cool study that I would have loved to have been in as a kid. Actually, according to my mother I didn’t like very many sweets, AND I am only 5’2″. Coincidence? Hmm…
