Four Food Choices to Avoid for Kids

Childhood obesity is a growing (pardon the pun) problem in the United States. Listed below are four foods that are largely responsible for this issue:

Breakfast Cereals: Cereals might be tasty, but they are also filled with sugar.

Hot Dogs: Everyone likes eating hot dogs on the fourth of July, but there’s a drawback to this all-American treat. Hot dogs are full of sodium and saturated fats.

Sugary Drinks: Kids just love chugging on sports drinks, sodas and juices. Unfortunately, these products are notorious for their sugar content and empty calories.

Packaged Lunches: At first glance, packaged lunches might seem like a cheap and quick alternative to bag lunches. The problem with this approach is that such items are packed with sodium, unhealthy fats, and simple carbohydrates. Moreover, they lack nutrients needed by growing children.
