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.

 

Action plan:

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

Are you trying to cut back on sugar? Let me know how you are getting on.
