interesting article !
Thankfully I have fairly little contact with MILS, but I did have a FILS comment from a dad in my playgroup. I wrote about it on GBCN - I was feeding DD dried apple bits and he commented that they were like a drug because the sugar was more concentrated than in the fresh fruit. Yes, dried apples, the next gateway drug. Sigh.
(FTR, I know it's true that sugar is more concentrated in dried fruit.)
