    Yikes! I did not know that 4grams = 1 teaspoon!
    I’m going to have to go through my kitchen this weekend.
    Thanks for the info!

    Great read! I never thought about it from the perspective of wiping it up off the counter…icky! We cut back on added sugars ages ago and when we do use added sugar it is always in the form of a natural sugar.

    Yes, most processed things have a ton of sugar. Also, things that are low in fat probably are really high in sugar. I make most things from scratch and we don’t drink juice. I got into the habit of reading labels when my son became allergic to dairy and soy (he has since grown out of it, thankfully). Sugar is hidden in everything!

  4. Great read! Natural products for kids for the go. (Luckily I try and keep my little boy away from sweets, in trade for fruit, though I’m not so successful in away from chocolate!) Not that I seem to stick to the same for me.. I feed my children like royalty and me.. well.. I suppose chicken nuggets will do for dinner again! ha ha


  5. I do already try to limit sugar for my daughter and I, but it is really scary how much sugar is in some things and we don’t even realise. Thanks for sharing; I think it’s really important and people should be made aware of it xx #SundayStars

    Wow, this is totally interesting. I am not a natural health nut, and in fact I binge on candy, but I didn’t realize even supposed-to-be-healthy drinks like juices contain that much sugar. I totally understand how it’s bad for your health. I don’t check food labels, but I guess this will motivate me to at least cut down on candy and other high-Sugar foods/drinks.

  8. Wow this post had really opened my eyes to just how much sugar is in foods i consume everyday will definitely be checking labels more often thanks for linking up to #sundaystars
