EP 986B - Half the Sugar, All the Love
Our children are consuming three times the recommended daily allowance of sugar. 

This puts them at an unprecedented risk for type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, excess weight, and even nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

Instead of putting your kids on a complete sugar detox, there are ways to use naturally-occurring sugars in fruits and vegetables to create recipes that still give a sense of "sweetness."

Jennifer Tyler Lee's new book, Half the Sugar, All the Love, is here to help, with 100 doctor-approved recipes that cut the sugar (by half—or more) without sacrificing the flavors our families love. 

Listen in to learn how you can create healthier options for your entire family. Lee also reveals some of the foods where extra sugar is hidden -- even things like tomato soup.
