Sugar Preacher's Experience
Fruit is the best substitute for craving sweets. Fructose(fruit) is sweeter than sucrose. I was at a friends home today and overheard her piano student ask if she had any apples. She was rewarding him with a candy bar, but he wanted an apple. I was surprised to hear teenagers choosing fruit over candy. Kids are making healthier food selections. Wahoo!!
