Sugar Awareness

Sugar Awareness: By Any Other Name It Tastes as Sweet

Sugar is a concentrated energy source that causes body chemistry changes similar to addictive substances. Naturally occurring sugars are part of healthy eating and are linked to beneficial nutrients, but free or added sugars bring no added benefits.

Many people struggle with traditional diets and have to fight the siren song of sugar. Developing sugar awareness and understanding how it triggers behaviors may inspire you to make these healthy swaps in your next celebration menu.
