What's scarier than Halloween ghosts and goblins? 👻
According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the MAX amount of added sugars you should eat in one day are 9 tsps for men, 6 teaspoons for women, and LESS 6 tsps a day for anyone under the ago of 18.
On Halloween, guess how much sugar the average child consumes??
About THREE CUPS of sugar, which is about 144 teaspoons of sugar!!
THAT IS 24 TIMES MORE THAN RECOMMENDED BY THE AHA 🚨
Not only will this knock the immune system out (watch how many people get sick these next few weeks...), but it also leads to a whole host of health issues. #KeepingItReal
Now of course Halloween is a holiday, but as a nutritionist I wanted to take this special time as an opportunity for a public service announcement. 😘
I love and care about you and want you to have OPTIMUM health.
