Sweets and Chocolates good for kids, study says

Sounds like it goes against everything we have been taught about good nutrition but researchers say that eating sweets may stop children from getting fat.
A new study has revealed that the consumption of sweets and chocolates by children has a favorable outcome, as it could prevent them from getting obese later in life.

Researchers have found that youngsters who regularly eat chocolate bars and other sugary treats are significantly less likely to be overweight or obese than those who do not, the 'Daily Mail' reported.

The study, reported in journal Food & Nutrition Research, found that weight, body mass index and waist circumference were lower for sweet eaters compared to non-eaters.

In addition, the study, conducted at Louisiana State University Agricultural Center, found that cardiovascular risk factors were also lesser in sugar sweet consumers.
