A Teaspoon of Sugar

A teaspoon of sugar makes the medicine go down! Sugar occurs in food in 3 ways

  1. Naturally occurring sugar
  2. Added sugar
  3. Digested into sugar

Many people would be surprise by the amount of sugar teaspoon equivalents they eat at a meal. When I first saw this graphic I was really surprised by the brown bread score! How does your diet fair?
