What is Sugar?
 Sugar is a simple carbohydrate.
 Carbohydrates are a source of fuel or energy for our
bodies.
 When we eat foods that contain sugar, our bodies
either use it for energy or it is stored.
What happens in our bodies when we eat sugar?
Immediate
energy
Glucose that’s
not needed
immediately
gets stored in
liver and
muscles
Once liver and
muscle stores
are full, extra
gets converted
to fat
What is Natural Sugar?
 Natural Sugar is sugar that comes from natural
sources like fruit.
 Although this sugar isn’t much different then added
sugar, we get many vitamins and minerals from the
foods that contain natural sugar.
 For example, fruits and vegetables contain fructose,
which is a natural sugar. Fruit also contains many
vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
What is Added Sugar?
 Added Sugar is any sugar that is found in foods that
is not naturally occurring
 It is referred to as ‘empty calories’
 Added sugar does not give us vitamins and minerals.

How does Sugar effect our bodies?
 Consuming natural sugar from fruits, vegetables, and
dairy supplies us with energy.
 Eating too many foods with added sugar sets the stage
for potential health problems, such as:

Poor Nutrition

Obesity

Tooth Decay
 How do you feel after you eat a lot of sugar?
How much sugar is in my drink?
How many grams of sugar are in 1 teaspoon?
 One teaspoon of sugar = 4 grams.
For Example:
If you are buying a bottle of Coca Cola with 44 grams of
sugar, you would divide 44 by 4 which is equal to about
11 teaspoons of sugar.

When you drink fruit juice, make sure its 100% fruit
juice, better yet, eat the fruit rather than the juice.

Use condiments sparingly- the sugar can add up
quickly!
Stick to one serving of a special
treat per day!
