The goal of 5% is a huge challenge when teenagers are currently getting 15% of their calories from added sugar.One option that doctors have called for is a tax on sugary drinks. The measure is being tried in Mexico, although there is still little evidence on its impact.
Yoghurt - especially sweetened fruit based yoghurts. Eat plain or Greek and add your own fresh fruit.
Pasta sauces- Check the sugar content of store bought sauces. You will be surprised at the sugar content. Alternatives, buy crushed tomatoes in a tin and add tomato paste and other fresh ingredients such as fresh herbs.
Coleslaw- Store bought variety with added mayonnaise, the sugar content in the mayo is usually very high. Try making your own mayonnaise, by hand or with a blender, tastes better too!
Flavoured or enhanced waters - Stick to plain water to avoid hidden sugars here too. These waters are often expensive and have little or no health properties.
