Spoonful of Sugar

I’ve always been sceptical of the link between sugar and hyperactivity. And this post reinforces my scepticism. The author writes about a study that proves that when mums thought their children had eaten sugar, they believed their kids became hyperactive. Even if they didn’t. Also, that if children were told that sugar made them hyperactive, then that became a self-fulfilling prophecy. Interesting stuff. I wonder if this could be applied across other areas of children’s behaviour?
