There's a fine line to walk when it comes to your little ones and their sugar intake. Kids and candy go together like nuts and bolts, and there's no denying that parents get a little surge of happiness when they see their kids' eyes light up once they get an ice cream cone in their hand, or get their first taste of birthday cake.
