3 Simple tips to reduce sugar

Overconsumption of sugar can be detrimental to oral, heart and liver health – not to mention your weight loss goals! 

Give these three simple tips a try to reduce the amount of added sugars in your diet.


Tip 1

Drink only water or plain teas. Soft drinks are the main contributor of free sugars intake in children and teens and the second main contributor in adults in this country. To cut your intake of sugar, stick to water, fruit or herbal or plain black or green teas.


Tip 2

Choose a protein rich snack such as nuts, natural yogurt, hummus with vegetable sticks or a boiled egg rather than cereal bars, biscuits, dried fruit or flavoured fruit yogurts.


Tip 3

Make your sauces from scratch - some of the worst culprits can contain up to 14 teaspoons of sugar per serving - we’re talking pasta sauces, stir-fry sauces and condiments like ketchup and barbecue sauce.
