Smart swaps: Lower sugar

Reducing the added sugars we eat can help to control weight and prevent tooth decay. Choosing products lower in sugar can also help our taste buds adjust to less-sweet foods. Here are some smart swaps for cutting back.

Instead of Watties Pick of the Crop™ Peaches Sliced in Light Syrup

Choose Watties Pick of the Crop™ Lite Peaches Sliced with no added sugar

Saves 3 1/2 teaspoons sugar per cup (17.4g)

Instead of adding Sealord Tuna Sensations Sweet Thai Chilli 95g can to a salad

Try adding Sealord Chunky Style Tuna in Spring Water

Saving you nearly 1 teaspoon sugar (4.3g)

Instead of dipping in to Gregg’s Classic BBQ sauce

Use Gregg’s 60% Less Sugar Classic BBQ Sauce

And drop 5.9g sugar – just over 1 teaspoon in a 20ml serve

Instead of pouring on Yoplait Natural Sweetened Yoghurt

Spoon up Yoplait Au Naturel Natural Yoghurt

That saves you 1 teaspoon of sugar for each 1/2 cup

Instead of indulging in Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate

Get decadent with Cadbury Old Gold 70% Cocoa

Saving you 7.4g sugar (1 1/2 teaspoons) for 4 squares (25g) of chocolate

Instead of sipping on Keri Juice Co. Apple, Orange & Mango Fruit Drink

Pour some Keri Juice Premium Kitchen Spicy Tomato Juice

And lose nearly 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar (7g) for a 1/2-cup serve
