Making Sense of Sugar have some great advice for us all at this time of year when copious amounts of chocolate are usually consumed.
For many families across the UK, the Easter weekend is traditionally a time for treats and celebrations.
And new research from Making Sense of Sugar shows that many of us simply can’t wait to get our hands on the first Easter treat, with almost one in five (18%) of us admitting our household cracks open the first chocolate egg as soon as they all wake up. A further 28% say they only manage to make it to mid-morning before tucking in. Sound familiar?
We love a treat as much as the next person but, we know that we have to keep a bit of an eye on how much we are treating ourselves! And it’s not only the chocolate. Other Easter treats, such as hot cross buns, all add up when it comes to counting calories. Just one buttered bun equates to 14% of our recommended daily calories intake.
Don’t get us wrong, we love a treat as much as the next person and so, it got us thinking that people may find it helpful to be able to see at a glance how they can enjoy their treats as part of a healthy diet.
In our new Guide to Sugars, we’ve taken a closer look at the labels of everyday kitchen favourites including what we plan on eating this Easter weekend. We’ve included a calorie breakdown and some facts you may find surprising….
