Sugar awareness week 2020

This week is Sugar Awareness Week. Sugar is found is a variety of foods. Free sugars are sugars added to food or drinks (biscuits, cakes, sweets, chocolates, cereals, ice-creams, fizzy drinks, flavoured yoghurts). Sugars in honey, syrups and fruits juices also count as free sugars. Eating too much sugar can cause weight gain, tooth decay and diabetes. The World Health Organization recommends that added sugar intake is no more than 24g (6 teaspoons) per day.

🍎Understand the health impacts of consuming too much sugar
🍎 Create an environment so that there is less temptation to consume sugar
🍎 Replace sugary snacks with fruits, low-GI carbohydrates, unprocessed nuts, protein rich food (balanced diet)
🍎 Encourage healthy eating habits
🍰 Enjoy a slice of cake at celebrations without feeling guilty
