Tips for Eating Less Sugar

Stay Hydrated

  • Choose water over fizzy-sugary drinks

  • Don't keep sugary drinks in the house

  • Use fresh fruit to add flavor to your water

  • Limit fruit juice to 150ml portion sizes or, even better, dilute it with water so you’re consuming even less

 

Breakfast

  • Choose eggs (which have a lot of protein) over sugary cereals. Try them scrambled, poached, sunny-side up, or even in an omelette.

  • Use the natural sweetness in your ingredients, like fruit, instead of added sugar.

  • Make smoothies for breakfast! Use combinations of fruit, oats, nuts, and seeds to make the perfect blended treat.

  • Add fruit to your weekend pancakes to avoid honey or syrups.  Apples, strawberries, blueberries, and pineapple chunks work well in pancakes, but you can also have savory pancakes with avocado, tomato and chilli.

 

Desserts

  • Save indulgent treats for the weekend or special occasions.

  • Create fruit kabobs and dunk them into a little dessicated coconut or homemade fruit pureés for a sweet treat.

  • Make your own popsicles! Use fruit to make your own and limit the amount of added sugar.
