Secondary Sugar kills? Wait, secondary sugar is the one that’s hidden and added to foods you wouldn’t suspect, so kids and parents get addicted. A horrendous revelation here is that baby formula contains added sugar. Lots of it! And less lactose than breast milk. And no nutrition label requirement? You must be kidding, right?

Laurent is the Founder and Chairman of EChO – Eradicate Childhood Obesity Foundation, a not-for-profit organization with a mission to improve overall public health of children. Laurent is also a member of the Nutrition Round Table at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and President of Bon'App, a social enterprise that improves access to, and quality of, nutrition education.
Born and raised in Paris, France, Laurent holds an MBA from the Wharton School, a Master of Arts in Socio-Cultural Anthropology from Columbia University, and he is a Senior Fellow of the Advanced Leadership Initiative at Harvard University.
