The short-term effects of eating too much sugar can lead to tiredness, tooth decay and a few more inches around the waistline. The long terms effects can cause chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Like with most things, moderation is key. There are certain steps you can take to have a balanced diet, to keep a healthy heart and to cut down your sugar intake:
Keep an eye out for our low sugar dietary symbol when doing your weekly shop
Why not include some of our tasty low sugar dishes as part of your order? You will see on all our products across the website and brochure that products which are low in sugar are clearly marked with an 'LS' symbol to highlight that they contain a low amount of sugar (0.3g per 100g or less).
Reducing your sugar intake in drinks
Eat dried fruit as part of a meal and not as a between-meal snack
It is better for your teeth to eat dried fruit as part of a meal, such as added to your breakfast cereal. Our delicious Apple, Sultana and Cinnamon Porridge is the perfect way to start the day if you are after something a little sweeter.
Try using different condiments
Be mindful of condiments such as ketchup and barbecue sauce, which can be high in sugar, and opt for lower sugar options such as mustard or hot sauce.
