Top 10 Worst Foods for Kids to Eat

Fruit Snacks

It’s easy to believe these snacks are a healthy choice for kids because of the use of the word fruit, but they are frequently loaded with sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and preservatives sweetened with fruit juice and contain no actual fruit. They can stick to children’s teeth and cause dental caries, and are often no better nutritionally than any other gummy candies. Look for versions with no added sweeteners and 100 percent real fruit. Or better yet, bypass the fruit snacks and opt for the real thing — fresh fruit.
