Sugar the word sounds so simple, doesn’t it? But did you know that there are various forms of sugar? For instance, sucrose, glucose, fructose (which is found in fruits), lactose (which is present in milk) and maltose. Sugar, when added to food, makes it more delicious, but it should be remembered that too much of sugar, when consumed, causes a lot of problems to a healthy body. It can make you fat, it causes hyperactivity in children and may be responsible for tooth decay.

Collect cereal packets and then make a list of the amount of calories per serving of the cereals, which are sugar coated to those, which are not. Check out if the number one ingredient (which means the one which is present in the greatest quantity in the cereal) is sugar or not.

Make a whole chart, comprising of different cereals available in the market and list down the number of calories per serving, as also the amount of sugar per serving. Once this is done, make another list of the amount of calories per serving and the amount of sugar per serving of all the foods that come in boxes or cans. Please remember, that the sugar content may not be mentioned under the heading of ‘sugar’ in these boxes, because as mentioned earlier, sugar comes in different forms.

Therefore be careful in ascertaining the type of sugar contained in each package.
