Healthy holiday sugary food tips

I have read an article from WickedLocal.com written by Dr. Rick Donahue about the healthy Sugars that need to be consumed and what not this coming holiday season.

I also found this article very useful to everybody and needing to be shared. Here below.

· Avoid sodas. Drink water or other unsweetened beverages instead. Remember that a 12-fluid-ounce can of soda has approximately 39 grams of sugar — that’s 10 teaspoons of sugar!

· Choose breakfast cereals carefully. Many breakfast cereals contain added sugar to make them more appealing to children. Skip the sugary and frosted cereals.

· Eat fewer processed and packaged foods, such as packaged cookies and cakes.

· Put out holiday snacks made with vegetables, fruit, low-fat cheese, whole-grain crackers, and low-fat, low-calorie yogurt instead of too much candy, pastries and cookies.

    I believe it is nit just about soda even if you consume natural fruits there are still sugar in it. So it is a matter of portion control though I admit that sugars in sodas are really bad.
