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.
