Jam and spreads

The Ronseal of light labeling! Standard jam contains around 50% sugar, so you can really make a difference to your intake by going for lighter versions. Don't go over the top with them though - they're still very calorific. Spreads such as Nutella and peanut butter are available in low-fat, lighter versions but don't over-compensate by using more of them!

Our nutritionist says: "Fruit desserts are difficult to judge. The golden rule is to remember that anything containing less than 15g carbohydrate is likely to be fairly low in sugar. As far as jams and spreads go, as long as you use the same amount, reduced fat and reduced sugar content is good."
