Beginning May 21, get a jump at curbing your sweet tooth. As nurses, we know overdoing it with sugar is bad for our health, yet we still eat more than we should. Excess sugar consumption can lead to obesity, cardiovascular disease, tooth decay and type 2 diabetes.

Limiting sugar intake is difficult because it is in most of our foods under different names. When sugar can be found in anything from salad dressings, sauces, breads to cereal — it feels like everything!

Join the 10 day Curb Your Sweet Tooth challenge to learn simple tips on how to decrease your sugar intake.
