A new World Health Organization guideline recommends adults and children reduce their daily intake of sugar to less than 10 percent of their total energy intake. A further reduction to below 5 percent – or roughly 25 grams (6 teaspoons) per day – would provide additional health benefits.
Here are a few healthy snacks with little to no sugar.
Erewhon Organic Harvest Medley cereal delivers a lightly sweetened medley of superfoods, such as organic sorghum, brown rice and puffed quinoa. The Erewhon Corn Flakes Cereal is a healthy and delicious gluten-free option with zero grams of sugar and fat. It’s the perfect option for breakfast or a snack on-the-go.
Kite Hill offers traditionally cultured almond milk yogurts that deliver a versatile plain, unsweetened yogurt that’s perfect as a standalone snack, addition to smoothies and breakfast bowls, or base for savory dips and sauces. Vegans and non-vegans alike will be in love. The yogurts come in a variety of flavors – vanilla, peach, blueberry, strawberry, and more.
SunButter No Sugar Added is the perfect peanut butter replacement. It is simply roasted sunflower seeds and a bit of salt. It features a distinctive, roasted sunflower seed taste and packs more nutritional benefits than traditional nut butters such as one-third less saturated fat and more micro nutrients like magnesium, Vitamin E, zinc and iron (1g sugar).
With less than 1g of sugar, Annie Chun’s Organic Seaweed Snacks are perfectly portioned and packed with healthy nutrients – iodine, fiber, protein, and vitamins, to name a few. In fact, seaweed offers the broadest range of minerals of any food on the planet. It’s an energizing and delicious snack that’s easy to pack while you’re on the go.
