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.
