Health Tip : Reduce Your Sugar Consumption

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests how you can limit added sugar:

  • Cut back on candy, desserts, baked goodies and other sweet treats.
  • Stick to fresh and healthy foods, such as vegetables, fruit, whole grains and lean forms of protein.
  • Drink water instead of sweetened drinks.
  • Avoid foods that are processed.
  • Opt for lower-sugar recipes when baking.
  • Substitute applesauce (unsweetened) or an artificial sweetener, instead of sugar.
