Sugars, fats, and salt


Found in various forms, natural and added.

Natural sugars are in fruits, milk, and some vegetables.

Added sugars hide in processed foods, desserts, and drinks.

Excessive sugar intake can lead to health issues. Moderation is key.


Healthy fats (unsaturated) are in nuts, avocados, and olive oil.

Less healthy fats (saturated/trans) are in fried and processed foods.

Fats provide energy, cushion organs, and help absorb vitamins.

Opt for healthy fats and limit the not-so-healthy ones.


Salt contains sodium, essential but too much is harmful.

Found in processed foods, canned goods, and fast food.

Excessive salt intake can lead to high blood pressure.

Flavor food with herbs and spices instead.

Remember, balance is the secret.

Choose whole foods, read labels, and savor the natural flavors.
