Finally! And easy way to keep track of our sugar intake

"Developed by a Montreal digital agency in conjunction with University of Toronto nutritionists, “One Sweet App” holds a database of common grocery store items, such as juices, cereals and desserts, and their free sugar contents. If a user scans an unlisted item, a researcher will calculate its free sugar content and add it to the database.

Earlier this year, The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report saying that free sugars should only make up about 10 per cent of an individual’s total daily energy intake."

... congrats to Natalie Bibeau for creating this app (on iTunes). Check out the story on CTV News
