Hay unas bebidas atleticas que son bebidas regulares en su casa? Han visto la cantidad de azucar dentro de ellas? Diganos aqui cuanta azucar contiene!

Estan sorprendido con la cantidad de azucar en estos yogures?

Cuales bebidas son parte de su vida normalmente?

Para nuestras matematicas hoy: Recuerdense que 4 gramos de azucar equivale a una cuchardita de azucar.

Hola a todos y bienvenidos! Por favor diganos de donde nos estan sintonizando!

Gracias a todos por venir! Se cuidan mucho!

Piensan que su familia le gustaria este "fizz," la mezcla de jugo y agua mineral? Que sabor de jugo van a usar?

Si estan bebiendo algo ahora, comparte que es la porcion!

Imaginase poner tanta azúcar in su cafe!

Una pregunta que pasa con Las bebidas dieteticas

Hola todos! Soy de Massachusetts. A mi me encanta beber te y leche chocolate!

Se ve riquisimo tu bebida! Me gusta como se ve la fruta congelada

Hola!

Según la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) el consumo de azúcar de una persona con una masa corporal normal no debe superar el 5% de la ingesta calórica diaria, es decir unos 25 gramos aproximadamente.

Your body process natural and added sugars the same--we want to stay mindful even of how much natural sugar we consume.

Fruit smoothies have quite a bit of both natural AND added sugars.

The nutrition facts label applies to everything we eat AND drink!

Sugar does hide in a lot of our beverages! Sometimes even the drinks we choose for great reasons have added sugar.

If you divide the number of grams of sugar on the nutrition facts label by 4, you'll be able to visualize how many teaspoons of sugar are in your drink (or food).

Just like balance in what we eat, we should look for balance in what we drink.

Oh cereal is REALLY hard to stick to the serving size on.

We found 55 g of added sugar in 16 oz. of chocolate milk. There are 7 g of natural sugar.

Here come some fun ideas for drinks without a lot of added sugar!

Sometimes it pays to be a sugar detective!

How many grams of sugar in 16 oz. of an iced coffee beverage?!?

Try to eat an orange rather than drinking orange juice!

What other flavors of juice would you like to make "fizzy?"

Does anyone have kids in schools where they don't serve chocolate milk?

There are 65 grams of sugar in one 16 oz. serving of cola (or 16.25 teaspoons)!!!!

Soda? Pop? Soda pop? Any old-fashioned friends who call it all tonic?

Oh here's a tricky one! How about orange juice?

Chat in your guesses for how many grams of sugar are in a 16 oz. serving of cola!

WOW I love this idea.....I like to put orange and lemons

That's a lot of sugar, you definitely consume what you need in one day with one of those beverages

Sometimes I buy the flavored seltzer waters and add fruit.

My teeth hurt just thinking about that much sugar

27 grams/5 servings=just over a teaspoon per person.

I like the visual you are showing with how much sugar in my drinks! Crazy

Sometimes I get tricked by the "100% of Vitamin C" claims on the front...anyone else?

Today, we feature “Eggs-In-A…” You can go the classic “in-a-hole” route OR if you are feeling adventurous, try “in-a-pepper”! Green bell peppers are often the most affordable of the bunch, but check the unit prices and buy when your favorites are on sale! Which one did you make? Which color pepper is your favorite? #Comment below! #NFVM2020 #HaveAPlant ... See MoreSee Less

#SpaghettiSquash is a very versatile ingredient. Not only is it a perfect swap in pad thai, spaghetti & meatballs, and buttered noodles, but it can be subbed in for other grains. Try mashing it with beans for a spicy toast topping or scrambling it with eggs and potato for a morning breakfast hash. What other ideas do you have? #StarOfTheWeek ... See MoreSee Less
