Sneaky Sugar – know where to spot the ‘sweet stuff’

“You don’t have to be a nutritionist to know that ice cream, cakes and brownies (and those pesky festive gingerbread men) are loaded with sugar. But what about the less obvious sources of the stuff?

Did you know that ‘healthy’ fruit yogurt and a granola bar can add up to nearly 30 grams of sugar? And dried fruit may sound healthy, but just 1/3 cup can have as much as 25 grams, and that is not all naturally occurring from the fruit itself.

Make sure to read the labels when buying packaged foods at the supermarket – especially in sauces and dressings!
