Toddlers getting too much sugar, study says - Rick Williams reports during Action News at 5pm on June 11, 2018. (WPVI)

America's toddlers are getting too much sugar, according to a new study.

Toddlers from 19 to 23 months are getting 7 teaspoons of added sugar a day - from cookies, drinks and ready-to-eat cereals.

That's more than in many candy bars.

Kids eating too much sugar can develop obesity, high cholesterol, and elevated blood pressure.
