Many people suffer with the experience of sugar addiction. If you feel this is you, be assured that you are not alone. You should never be made to feel awkward for choosing a low sugar lifestyle. Many people have a real struggle with sugar.
We are told this is unrealistic and that people need more education. Yet you’d have to be living under a rock not to be aware about sugar.
There is no point telling people to choose A instead of B, when A is not available!
My little girl wants a sweet, where is the SugarWise strawberry gummy? Or the biscuit or cake that’s within the recommendations? Yes, she could have fruit instead, but maybe she doesn’t want a fruit instead, maybe she wants a sweet!
I can get a halal, kosher, vegan, Fairtrade and gluten free biscuit easily enough, why not a biscuit that is “free from” sugar?
We need more options, more SugarWise cakes and biscuits, if these are things we enjoy.
It shouldn’t have to be a choice between food you love and being SugarWise, a choice between a sugary chocolate muffin and a piece of fruit.
Where are the healthy tasty sugar free chocolate muffins? Or the delicious ice creams that are SugarWise and full of wholesome ingredients you’d be happy to give your baby?
The internet is full of these recipes on healthy eating blogs and you can buy some healthy SugarWise desserts on the internet and in health food stores, so they do exist. But it’s really hard to find these options in mainstream supermarkets, and at a reasonable price.
While some people are happy cutting down their sugar intake a bit, for others sugar is experienced as an addiction and they are better off cutting it out completely, in the same way some people choose to with alcohol.
Whether it is proven to be an addiction or not doesn’t matter.
If you are one of those people for whom life is better without it, you are just as entitled to cut it out as someone who chooses to cut out meat or gluten or anything else in their diet that causes them to have medical, moral, religious, health, or any issues.
