Sweets
Use Sparingly
Serving Size
1 tbsp sugar, honey, syrup, jelly, jams
6 fluid ounces sugar-sweetened soda

One portion is the amount of a sweet food which provides approximately 15 grams of sugar carbohydrate.

Sweets refers to sugar, honey, syrups and foods which contain a significant amount of these ingredients. Because sugars are low in vitamins, minerals and fiber, sweets are generally poor in nutritional value but can add lots of calories. Try to limit refined sugars and select, instead, more whole foods which are naturally sweet, like fruit.
