Sugar has become the new baddie in the nutrition wars, and not without good reason. There is increasing evidence that the increase in processed food consumption is linked to the increase in obesity and type II diabetes.
The UK has just introduced a tax on sugary drinks to help combat childhood obesity, a move which Australia is still against. The World Health Organisation has recommended that we limit our daily serve of sugar to 6 teaspoons a day.
Here is a sugar quiz you can take to find out how "sugar-wise" you are. It reveals how much sugar is in a bowl of weetbix, orange juice, jam and other commonly eaten foods. It's a good starting point if you have been meaning to cut down the sugar and are not sure of your biggest sources. It may also provide some surprises about the sugar content of foods you thought were not so bad.
Sugar is pretty addictive stuff so it is never easy to give up completely but the more tools you have to help you the better. Good Luck!
