Sign up at desk or leave your name in the comment box below as soon as possible. This event is open to all members.
The GOAL – see how many days you can go without sugar. Keep track of your NO SUGAR days and then come in to the school and update the chart.
Sugar is not always listed as Sugar in the Ingredient List
Sugar likes to hide in your food
Sugar is addictive – the more you eat the more you want
Sugar is BAD for your body
No Sugar of any kind, including artificial sweeteners. The only sweet items allowed are Fresh Fruit and 1-2 Tablespoons of dried fruit/day.
You are allowed to bake with dried fruit, applesauce and banana.
YOU MUST CHECK ALL LABELS before consuming any processed/packaged foods. Most likely they will contain sugar.
The easiest way to guarantee that you are not cheating is to eat whole, real, natural food.
If you avoid anything in a packaged form you will most likely be safe. Packaged baked goods are most likely to contain corn syrup, or hidden sugars.
This is not an easy Challenge, but if you make it through it, you will be that much closer to conquering your ADDICTION to SUGAR.
Sugar to avoid: White sugar, brown sugar, cane sugar, evaporated cane juice, corn syrup, honey, agave, maple syrup, stevia, sweet n low, equal, splenda
Basically if it tastes sweet and isn’t fruit or dried fruit with no added sugar, you can’t eat it if you want to mark that day.
Parents will need to make sure children don’t eat sugar. Children MUST promise to be HONEST. If they eat anything sweet besides fruit or a baked good that is sweet from applesauce, dried fruit or bananas, they should not count that day
