Most ce­re­als bear more re­sem­blance to a pud­ding than a healthy snack. Even the sup­pos­edly health­ier op­tions that don’t con­tain honey, choco­late or added sug­ars can be up to 23% su­gar, ac­cord­ing to anal­y­sis con­ducted by Which?


They’re mar­keted as a healthy, quick and con­ve­nient way to eat your break­fast on the go, but most brekkie bars are loaded with added su­gar. Which? found that of the 30 best-sell­ing bars it ex­am­ined, 16 were more than 30% su­gar.


It’s an­other break­fast sta­ple and while a 250ml glass does con­tain a de­cent dose of vi­ta­min C, it also has the equiv­a­lent of five su­gar cubes, about the same as a can of Sprite. And you wouldn’t drink that for break­fast, un­less you’ve got the hang­over from hell.


A 500g jar of pasta sauce can con­tain around 30g of su­gar, with the low-fat ver­sions pack­ing even more to make up for the lack of taste and tex­ture when fat is re­moved. Want a healthy sauce? Then make it your­self us­ing ac­tual toma­toes.
