Do not eat sweets after meals as it adds to your overall sugar intake. Moreover, in the long run, it increases your risk of obesity and other related health conditions.
Do not have sweets just before hitting the bed. It will not only up to your caloric intake but also increase your blood glucose level at night.
Make sure you do not store sweets in a refrigerator for more than a day. Sweets made from milk must be consumed on the day itself or it can lead to stomach complications.
The best time to have sweets is in between the meals as it gives you an instant energy and also prevents any dip in your blood glucose level.
