Does anyone truly NOT have a sweet tooth? Whether it’s a refreshing fruit sorbet or a piece of chocolate on your afternoon break, we all enjoy a little something sweet occasionally.

Unfortunately, regularly giving into your sweet cravings may not be the best thing for your health. Let’s do a quick tally of an average daily added sugar intake:

Breakfast: (17g of added sugar)

  • 1 bowl of honey flavoured multigrain cereal +
  • 1 coffee with 1 milk + 1 sugar

Morning snack: (8g of added sugar)

  • 1 vanilla yogurt

Lunch ( 4g of added sugar)

  • Homemade ham sandwich with 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • Apple

Afternoon snack: (20g of added sugar)

  • medium matcha latte

Dinner: (5 g added sugar)

  • Grilled chicken with 1 tbsp bbq sauce and grilled veggies

Dessert: (10g of added sugar)

  • 1 scoop chocolate ice cream in a cone 

Total estimated added sugars: 64g

As you can see, it’s easy to reach the maximum recommended amount of 25-50g of added sugars per day!
