Low Sugar Meal Plan For Kids
Cut out unnecessary added sugars from your family’s diet with healthy, simple-to-prepare recipes that taste GREAT! This plan includes plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and proteins for balanced and satisfying meals, without the added sweeteners.
How Much Sugar is OK in your Kid’s Diet?
The newest guidelines from the American Heart Association about sugar for kids, say that kids should have less than 25 grams (6 teaspoons) of added sugar daily. This is because eating foods high in added sugars throughout childhood is linked to the development of risk factors of heart disease like obesity and elevated blood pressure.
In addition, kids who eat foods loaded with added sugars tend to eat fewer foods with more nutrition like fruits, veggies, and whole grains.
Sometimes it can feel like added sugars are impossible to avoid. But with my Low Sugar Meal Plan, you’ll be equipped with over 100 delicious, healthy, and simple-to-make low-sugar recipes for a healthier lifestyle for you AND your kids.

Tell Erica I love her breakfast meal! Very creative.
Ok, I haven’t seen your blog in awhile because I didn’t know you met BOB!!! Wow, we miss 3 months of lunches and look what happens. You have a lot to catch me up on in September!
Thanks for all the great ideas. I went to the store and stocked the frig at work with cottage cheese, yogurt, and carrot sticks. I plan on adding new items each week. It really helped me stay out of their unhealthy snack cabinet!
This looks good and healthy. I’m getting nervous since next week my kids go back to school and we pack lunches. My one daughter in 8th grade doesn’t want to carry a lunchbox only a brown bag, I disagree. Any tips on keeping a lunch fresh in a brown bag? Also hoping to keep up our better then usual lunch menu. Thanks for everything.

You can discuss this with your doctor, but we always recommend a low sugar diet for kids. It certainly won’t hurt. 🙂
