We all know that too much sugar is bad for us and can cause weight gain and damage teeth. Whilst a small amount of sugar in your diet is totally fine, don’t try to cut it out completely.
The sugar in fruit and vegetables is completely natural and far better for you than a packet of sweets as they will provide many minerals and vitamins to help you stay healthy.
Fruit juice can be acidic so drinking too much of it can cause damage to your teeth. Remember that 150ml is a portion, so you could always try to dilute it with some water to reduce the amount of sugar you’re consuming.
Sugar is also commonly found in products like chocolate, cake and desserts. Again, these are still fine to eat in moderation but check out our labels for advice on portion size.
