Looking for sugars on the labels

It is important that you should look at the labels first before buying such food as this can increase the chances of having Diabetes in the family and can also cause tooth decay on your child's teeth.
I have here some information on how to spot sugars on the labels; all you have to do it look out for these:

• The following are sugars- glucose, dextrose, maltose, fructose, hydrolysed starch.

• Invert sugar or syrup, honey, raw sugar, brown sugar, muscavado, and concentrated fruit juices are all sugars.

• Fruit juices too contain sugars, which can cause decay, so always dilute this with a lot of water and keep to mealtime.

• Maltrodextrin by the way is not sugar but can cause decay.
