Goodbye Tim Tams – dunk these in your cuppa instead

We love having a treat when we have a cuppa for morning or afternoon tea.

But be mindful when you reach for the biscuit tin – as so many treats have a lot of added sugar in them, which in turn can lead to issues with weight, blood pressure, diabetes and depression.

In fact, a standard Tim Tam contains 8.3g of sugar per biscuit – that’s around 2 teaspoons.

We’ve rounded up some of our healthy sweet treats that you can dunk in your cup of tea instead!
