1. Will sugar make children hyperactive or cause misbehavior?

No!

Sugar does not cause hyperactivity or misbehavior. Research has demonstrated that sugar intake may have the reverse effect. When children were randomly selected into two groups, one that received sugar and another that received a placebo, the children in the group that consumed sugar was less hyperactive! Sugar is not the cause of hyperactivity, rather the excitement of the event. Having a birthday party or celebration creates heightened energy, the event is what may cause hyperactivity and misbehavior, not sugar.
