Goodbye Sugar 30 Day Challenge

Americans are starting to realize just how much sugar is in our diets! But not all sugar is created equal. Some sugar is naturally occurring in foods like fruits and milk. But then there’s sugar that is added to foods and beverages for taste. Sometimes sugar is added to foods that already have naturally occurring sugars, like yogurt. Some added sugars are in obvious places – we know that there is sugar in drinks like lemonade, in candy, baked goods, and other treats. But there are often sugars added to foods you would never think of – like salad dressing and savory sauces.

Want to reduce the added sugars and calories in your day without sacrificing taste? SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener, the newest sweetener from the SPLENDA® Brand family of sweetener products, can help!

What is the Goodbye Sugar 30 Day Challenge?

SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener is challenging you to spot the places in your diet where sugar is added, and identify the occasions where you can easily swap out the added sugar and the calories with the delicious SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener. The goal of this 30 day challenge is to give you the tools to make small changes in your lifestyle that can help you reduce added sugars and calories, without sacrificing taste.

How Do You Take the Challenge?

  1. Sign up and let your friends and family know about the challenge.
  2. Get to know the different sugar terms on ingredient labels.
  3. Identify obvious sources of added sugar in your refrigerator, pantry or on your next trip to the supermarket.
  4. Watch for places where you have total control over removing added sugar from your foods and drinks.
  5. Take a moment to ask yourself if you miss any of the added sugar you are cutting out.

SPLENDA® Naturals will provide you with delicious recipes and tips to help you along the way, as well as chances to win some sweet prizes and even a spa getaway. Remember to use the hashtag #GoodbyeSugar30 during the challenge to let everyone know how you’re doing! Sign up here.
