Are you a grazer or do you prefer to eat three square meals a day? Personally, I’m the latter, but new research reveals that one in three of us will often eat a snack instead of sitting down to a main meal. And with snack foods on offer at nearly every turn these days, why wouldn’t we settle for the quick option? But all that snacking has big consequences for our health. Flick to page 28 for smarter snack ideas and strategies to beat mindless munching. This month we also look at how our fast-paced, stressful lifestyles affect our health, and reveal the best foods to ease stress (p22). Speaking of stress, hands up if you’ve settled for eggs on toast for dinner after a long day? We’ve stepped things up a notch,…

Break the habit Loved the article ‘Why is it so hard to say no to cake?’ (June, 2017). I really don’t enjoy rich chocolate cakes but feel compelled to participate on birthdays. I mentioned this article at work, and we’ve swapped the biscuit jar for a fruit bowl. Next birthday it’s cake and vegie sticks with a healthy dip, so everyone can still take part, but not spoil their healthy eating plan.› Michelle Payne, NSW Energy boost The story about beating the 3pm slump in your May, 2017 issue has changed my afternoons. I normally reach for something from the vending machine for a perk up. As soon as I read the article, I went to the shops in my lunch break for supplies and I am happy to say I’m now as…

WE ASKED: New US guidelines state that juice is not appropriate for young children under the age of one. Do you agree? YOU REPLIED: • Milk or water. Nothing else is needed. Even my Miss-nearly-seven rarely gets anything other than milk, or water as well. Ali Stieler • It’s a while since mine were babies, but fruit juice wasn’t recommended even back then for babies. And especially not in a bottle with a teat! Kate Sudron • I remember the one-part pear juice to five-parts water for constipation in little ones. Greer Marsh Burgess • When I trained as a Mothercraft nurse in the ‘80s we gave the babies no more than one-fifth sugarless or fresh juice in boiled water. Fiona McLennan…

At last some sensible advice. It saddened me that sugar was taking the sole blame for the ‘obesity crisis’, when it’s obvious even to me there’s so much more. Adrienne Harries, QLD I am so pleased that rather than demonising sugar you point out that it’s an issue of quantity. Melanie Norton, VIC Such an insight learning about all of the hidden sugars in my food. How can the food industry get away with these things? Katie Young, VIC What a pleasure to read an unbiased article on sugar. Relieving to find the scientific evidence against fructose is not as strong as some claim. Kerry Massie, QLD…
