EASY SWAPS FOR DINNER

Cut back on tomato sauce portions or if your kids can’t help themselves, swap it with a naturally sweetened tomato sauce which has less added sugar.

Beware of BBQ sauces - they’re packed with sugar.

Try expanding your condiments to include non-sugary options like mustard.

Swap sugary salad dressings for olive oil with lemon, mustard and/or vinegar.

Sugary stir fry sauces include lemon chicken, teriyaki, BBQ, sweet and sour, and honey soy.

Try homemade stir fry sauces using soy, garlic and ginger which is naturally sweet.

Check tinned vegetables for added sugar.

Learn how to read labels and check anything that comes in a package - we’ve spotted added sugar in tinned fish, bread, baked beans, olives, tinned vegetables and “healthy” frozen meals.
