We all know that we need to monitor how much sugar we consume, especially when we are trying to lose weight. But with so many processed foods containing hidden sugars, and so many confusing campaigns and food labels proclaiming to be ‘Light’, ‘Healthy’ or ‘Approved’, it can become difficult to make the right decision.
Our wonderful Healthy Mummy Nutritionists have been hard at work in the lead up to October’s 28 Day Weight Loss &  Sugar Detox Challenge, to help take the guess work out of your menu planning.

Check out their Ten Simple Food Swaps To Reduce Your Sugar Intake ~


Stop yourself from grabbing a quick toasted crumpet for breakfast and switch it out with our delicious Healthy Mummy Avocado and Chilli Salt on Toast option instead. Not only will you feel fuller for longer, but you’ll also be saving yourself from a whopping 17.1 grams of sugar

Treating yourself to a break from the kitchen and chowing down on some McDonald’s Hotcakes with butter and golden syrup?
Think again. Containing a staggering 46.6 grams of sugar, you’re taste buds and waist line will thank you for choosing our Healthy Mummy Pancakes with Chia Jam instead, which only contain 4 grams of sugar.



It’s easy to get caught up in the chaos of the day, and many of us have been guilty of buying a Subway Chicken Teriyaki 6 Inch Sub Sandwich (9.9 grams of sugar) for lunch thinking we were choosing wisely.

When compared to The Healthy Mummy Chicken Caesar Wrap (2 grams of sugar), it’s easy to see how our sugar intake can add up quickly when grabbing a quick fix on the run.

Alright guys, don’t get me wrong, I love a quick and easy dinner to whip up after a long exhausting day. But when we looked at the sugar comparisons between Kantong’s Honey Sesame and Garlic Stir Fry Sauce with The Healthy Mummy’s Lemon and Ginger Beef Stir Fry, it isn’t difficult to see how greatly store bought sauces and marinades can vary from homemade ones.


And while we are talking about sauces, let’s not forget the sugar hiding in the extras we add to our meals. Did you know that for every tablespoon of Tomato Sauce you pile on your plate, you are consuming an extra 8.1 grams of sugar? Substitute your sauce for deliciously fresh chopped Tomatoes with Balsamic Vinegar and you’ve immediately saved yourself 5.8 grams of sugar, and that is just in your toppings!



This is where so many of us slip up. The 3 O’Clock hunger pangs that we haven’t prepared for.

How often do we reach for the prepackaged, sweet treats that satisfy our sweet tooth but leave us feeling deflated and guilty afterwards.

Swapping your Strawberry flavoured Fruche Yoghurt snack for The Healthy Mummy’s Yoghurt, Cocao Nibs and Berry Snack will save you a massive 16 grams of sugar, while getting organised and prepping yourself The Healthy Mummy’s Healthy Snickers Slice in lieu of a real Snickers Bar will see your body 18.15 grams of sugar better off.

Okay, this is where lots of us unknowingly consume those sneaky grams of sugar. The Spiced Chai Tea you sip to get you through the afternoon can see you taking in an enormous 11.3 grams of sugar that you might not remember to pop into your food diary.

Sip on a refreshing Green tea and nibble on some almonds instead, and your body will be 10.3 grams of sugar lighter.


And next time you are reaching for that can on Soft Drink that you are sure will give you the little ‘pep up’ you are looking for, try to first consider the 37.9 grams of sugar your drink contains. Substitute for a Natural Mineral Water with fresh citrus instead, and you’ll be much better off.



This is probably the most important comparison to keep in mind the next time you order your Healthy Mummy Smoothies.

Not only are our shakes caffeine, filler and accelerant free, they are also an unbelievable 16.6 grams of sugar lighter PER SERVE than so many other brands of shakes on the market.

Plus, our delicious Healthy Mummy Smoothie range are an excellent source of essential vitamins, minerals, nutrients and antioxidants to better nourish your busy body. It’s an easy decision to make, your body will thank you for it.
