1% Milk-No Added Sugar

1% Milk-No Added Sugar
At ONIE we agree that watching the sugar you eat is a very legitimate concern. Blood glucose levels are directly affected by the amount of sugar we eat. Similarly, carbohydrates are broken down into sugar. Too much sugar in the diet can cause you to gain weight and damage your overall health. The US Dietary Guidelines recommend that we reduce consuming foods with added sugars or foods that have caloric sweeteners added to them during processing, preparation, or after preparation.

It is hard to believe that 9 out of 10 ten kids are consuming almost 70% more mg of sodium than calories and it is affecting their health (1,681 mg of sodium for every 1,000 calories consumed).

Chicken Fingers

Chicken Fingers
The featured recipe of the week is chicken fingers. A family favorite but with a special twist. As indicated on the picture, it is 1 to 1 certified, which tells me that the salt/sodium in a single serving does not exceed the amount of calories per serving. This is an easy rule of thumb to help me limit my salt/sodium intake to 2300 mg per day, the daily recommend amount. Read More
