Tres leches. Flan. Pastelito de guayaba. Cajeta. Alfajor. Churros. Need I go on? Latinxs make seriously amazing sweets. With our penchant for all things dulce comes a greater risk of health problems like Type 2 diabetes (we’re 50% more likely to die from this than white folks) and heart disease (our number 1 cause of death in years past).

It’s not too late to start implementing some low and no-azúcar habits to your daily life.
