How often do you prepare food at home? 👩🍳👨🍳
Most of us eat nearly 3️⃣ times more sugar than we should! These can hide in 🍰, fizzy drinks, juice, 🍫, pastries, chips, 🍪, yoghurts, 🍬, and 🍦. Consuming too much sugar can lead to the build-up of ⚠️harmful fat on the inside that we cannot see, which can cause ⚠️weight gain and ⚠️serious diseases in the future. Our actions are our future! Be conscious with sugar.
