There is nothing wrong with a lollipop now and then. The problem is that most foods that seem like foods have sugar and corn syrup as ingredients, and even when it's listed you don't have any real idea how much is actually in there. So you can think you are feeding your kid real food but you aren't. Try reading labels at a 99c only store. There is almost nothing there in a can that isn't tainted with sugar.
