Cost of family groceries and sugars in food items

Total cost of all groceries = $145.32 (however, I have only selected a sample of the groceries to report on)

Amount of sugar in selected items:

  1. Edam Cheese 1 KG  <1.0g/100g
  2. Homebrand Milk 3L  4.8g/100mL
  3. Pitted Prunes  34.2g/100g
  4. Verkers Salami  0.5g/100g

Hi Robin,
One of the problems with dried fruits, although they are healthy for us to eat, is that the high amounts of sugars that are in them, which are in a concentrated form, stick to our teeth. Hence, tooth decay.
