Your typical can of baked beans contains a whopping 18g of sugar! That’s 3 times the amount of recommended sugar intake per person per day as advised by the World Health Organisation. If you share a can of beans between 2, you’ve already eaten 50% more than your daily allowance of sugar for the day and that’s not even counting everything else you have eaten that may contain even more hidden sugars. My solution – make your own. Super easy and takes around 15 minutes. I’ve used canned goods in this recipe for ease but if you want to use fresh tomatoes and pre-soaked dried beans, that’s even better. Beans are super nutritious and loaded with healthy fibre and coupled with lycopene loaded tomato sauce are a super balanced and healthy meal. It’s also meal that kids are happy to eat.
