It turns out that avoiding sugary snacks is not just healthy for your teeth, but new studies show that it's also healthy for your heart. Being mindful when eating processed foods, looking out for sugar on food labels, and relying more on whole foods can help you to establish a diet low in sugar. Eating whole fruit—a great snack,—can satisfy your need for something sweet. Unlike processed foods, the fiber in fruit slows the absorption of sugar. This means fewer spikes in blood sugar. For a twist, try freezing and juicing fruit, like bananas, for a fun, creamy, sweet treat that is better for your family's heart health!
