Abstract

Added sugars are a non-nutritional source of calories found in many food products where people do not expect to find them. There is ongoing discussion of the healthy amount of added sugars to consume as well as new guidelines and labeling efforts. This project reviews the epidemiology of a small town in VT and considers ways to improve the awareness of added sugars and how to reduce the amount consumed by its residents.
