10 Foods You Shouldn’t Feed Your Kids
I remember my younger days when I could eat two Big Macs without hesitation. Now at age 20, I wouldn't dare to do that. I would have to spend hours working out! Kids are so lucky they can usually eat what they want but parents should try to keep them away from these foods.
On KVIA.com, I came across this informative slide show of food most of us love. It's targeted towards foods bad for kids but I think these foods aren't very healthy for any age group. Here's the list!
1. Chicken Nuggets
Made out of chicken lips, these tasty little mysterious golden gifts are a guilty pleasure for me.
2. Sugary Cereal
Feeding your kids crazy amounts of sugar is just asking for trouble.
3. Hot Dogs
Another mystery food my mother always told was made out of chicken lips and butt.
4. Lunch Meats
Empty calories is all that is in these meats. Bologna is my enemy!
5. Juice/Flavored Drinks
These drinks maybe filled with vitamins but they are also filled with sugar.
6. French Fries
So delicious but so full of fat, sodium and calories!
7. Potato Chips
Just like fries, chips are dangerously delicious
8. Fruit Roll-Ups/Gummy Snacks
These snacks lie about the fruit. They are about 99% sugar, 1% fruit.
This article advises parents to teach their kids that donuts are more of a dessert than breakfast item. Does this mean I can have ice cream instead?
If pizza sauce can be considered a vegetable to some people, I think we should put fried oreos here instead.
I'm not a huge fan of junk food but I do like to sneak in a few of these foods when I'm craving them. There is nothing wrong about having an intimate moment with a chicken nugget. What foods do you think are missing from this list?
