Why does candy taste good, especially to children?

Rettag:

mmmmmmmmmmm,]
it''s sweet

Boxermom:

There are theories which suggest that taste buds in mammals develop sensitivity to *sweet* flavours so as to attract the child to breast milk and to help the child distinguish between food sources they should want and those they should not want.

Cutekannan:

Very interesting answer, thanks.

ÐitzyÐame:

sugar

Thomas:

You get my vote!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cutekannan:

But some candy is available without sugar. I was wondering more about why nature makes many crave eating candy. Does it have something to do with increasing survival...or something like that.

Muttin':

Children need energy to expand and grow. Sugar provides the energy and creates the desire to eat it. I'm getting old, I don't like sweets to much anymore. I'm more into the Carbohydrates. I have a sweet tooth for pasta and meat and potatoes now. Kids simply need fast energy.

Cutekannan:

Sounds like the best answer to me. Thanks.

Cutekannan:

But is there some advantage that accures to kids by wanting to eat candy?

NDWind:

It's the same reason that it tastes good to adults ... I reckon! :-)

Cutekannan:

Yeah, but why?

NDWind:

uh oh ... I didn't quite read the question correctly.

I suppose it's the sugar ... even if it's natural sugar (like fruits of all sorts).

1hotnurse:

Hey, hey, now... 18 & up only, I swear!

Cutekannan:

LOL....no, it was not all about you. I was wondering if there might be a more scientific answer.
