20 Foods With Enough Sugar For Your Whole Day suar intake 640x462 jpgThe World Health Organization has updated its guidelines dictating how much sugar we should be consuming in a day. WHO’s updated recommendation is six teaspoons of sugar a day, half of the previous suggested. That’s still quite a bit of sugar– 24 grams a day if you consider that there are about 4 grams of granulated white sugar a teaspoon–but enough with the word problems. I feel like I’m in middle school math class.

Although it’s no secret that a lot of foods, particularly processed and packaged foods, contain an outrageous amount of sugars, it can still be surprising how quickly we can reach our sugar threshold with just one item.   

Here are 20 items that will meet or exceed your daily limit of sugar:
