So-called Healthy Foods That Aren't Healthy

You might be surprised to find out foods you thought were "healthy" really are not so much! Your family might have been better off eating chips, ice cream, or a big piece of chocolate cake. Consumers are bombarded everyday with "tricky" foods. Just because a box says that it is "Fat-free" or "sugar-free" does not mean it is good for you. Reading those words on a box can deceive us into thinking that we can eat away totally guilt-free. Take time to read the label. Save your family from unwanted calories, fat, and possible side effects from food additives like MSG.
