It's true that some of these are high in sugar, but you also have to look at what they contain - if the sugar comes from fruit then they should also have a good dose of fibre, so are better for you overall than sweets or biscuits.

I know Zoe Harcombe is very anti sugar, but if you have a sweet tooth, you're better off satisfying it with a banana or some grapes than a cake.


If you Google "Zoe Harcombe" you may find a lot of information including cholesterol!


Thanks for that tip Bala, plenty of interesting reading.
