How to achieve 6 teaspoons or less per day

The first step to reducing daily added sugar consumption is finding out how much we are eating and where the added sugar is in our diet. Then we can decide how much we want to have.

By learning to read food labels and making better choices when we shop and cook, we can teach ourselves to be less dependent on added sugar to enjoy our food and feel good.
