Sugar Tips

How can we limit the sugar in our diet?

  • For snacks, choose fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and milk products rather than baked goods and sweetened desserts.
  • Read food labels. Sugars listed near the top of an ingredient list means the food is likely high in sugar.  Check for ingredients such as sucrose, sugar, liquid sugar, invert sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, honey, molasses, or  maple syrup.
  • Look for Health Check products.
