When packing your or your kid’s lunch, go easy on products with added sugar. Sugar that naturally occurs in foods like fruit is what you want. When you read an ingredient label and sugar is listed (especially close to the top of the ingredient list), those are the foods to eat in moderation.
Even something like yogurt can be deceiving. Sneaky product: fruit yogurt 6oz 23 grams added sugar. Better product: vanilla 9 grams, BEST product: plain yogurt 0 grams.
