First things first, I’m definitely not an advocate for quitting sugar. I believe the key to a healthy lifestyle is balance – sweet treats included. But I also think it’s a good idea to be aware of how much sugar is in your favourite foods so you can make a conscious decision when indulging. If you’d rather live in ignorant bliss, DO NOT look at the chart below. I’ve thrown in some everyday foods, too – the sugar content of which might shock some of you!
*Sugar content shown above is an average amount based on the nutritional information found on the packaging of each food/drink (4g of sugar = 1 cube/teaspoon).
Were you surprised by the amount of sugar in these foods? What’s your favourite sweet treat?
