supermarketguru Spooky Sugar Tips Sugar is hidden in many of our favorite eats. Find out how much sugar we're consuming on average and how to cut back.
Sugar is everywhere, especially today, it’s Halloween! And Halloween usually kicks off the Holiday season, and that means treats, parties and dietary cheats are on the horizon. Regardless of holiday season or not, Americans of all ages are getting more sugar than they’ve bargained for and to add to that, November is National Diabetes Awareness Month - a condition in which sugar plays a huge role. According to the American Heart Association, Americans eat about 22 teaspoons (110 grams) of added sugars a day, that’s 3.6 times the recommendation (or limit) for women and 2.4 times that for men. That’s spookier than a halloween ghost!
Happy Halloween! Maybe the neighborhood kids won't make a dent in your front-stoop stash or your kids will finally share their loot (gasp!) — or maybe it's a mix of both. Either way, a surplus of candy has a much higher purpose than mindless unwrapping and eating.
