Limit your sugar intake by avoiding these high-calorie offenders
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.
PRE MADE SAUCE
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.
