I'm just going to ramble here a bit. Thinking about how much sugar we are really getting. I always knew there was a reason those sugar treats I see the kids being handed left & right bugged me. I kind of felt like we need to limit sugar but by how much I wasn't sure. So anyways one tsp of sugar equals 4 grams of sugar. This article recommends women get no more than 6 tsp a day. Well my husband likes regular yoplait yogurt. It contains 26 gm of sugar so that equals 6.5 tsp of sugar. So that would be it, one little yogurt & you'd have to be done w/ sugar for the day, and you'd actually be over the recommended amount. It seems so daunting, sugar is everywhere. That is a little less than a 1/4 cup of sugar in that yogurt. Holy c@#& I give this to my daughter! Not a full container all at once, but still it was an eye opener. It seems so ridiculous that I wonder if I got something wrong.
