According to the New York Times, sugar is added to nearly 70 percent of packaged foods, and is found in breads, health foods, snacks, yogurts, most breakfast foods and sauces. The article also notes that the average American eats about 17 teaspoons of added sugar a day, and this doesn't take into account the natural sugars in foods we eat. To help people read labels more carefully and lessen their sugar intake, the newspaper came up with the 7-Day Sugar Challenge. Following that program could help you take your next healthy step.
