Kids Just Avoid Fake Health Foods

Dear Parents,

I would like to ask a question that do you 'reward' your child with Junk food for his good behavior? ... Balancing healthy and nutritious food with taste is indeed a monumentally tough ... interferes with the body's nervous system to fake the enhanced taste effect.

It is very easy to get tempted to eat so-called healthy packaged food while shopping at the supermarket. But the realities behind such health foods are quite different.Here are a few fake foods all you kids should avoid.

1. Instant Oatmeal:

Most of us are inclined to think that granola or instant oatmeal based cereals are very healthy. But this is far from teh truth. Oats present in granola or other cereals are extremely refined and processed because of which they lose all their nutritional value, especially fibre.

2. Fruit Juice:

Did you know that drinking one tall glass pa packaged fruit juice is the same as drinking one tall glass of sugary cola? No matter how healthy packaged juices claim themselves to be, the reality is that they are nothing but a mixture of some fruit pulp, water sugar and a lot of flavouring agents.

3. Vegetable Oils:

Vegetable oils may sound healthy because they contain the word vegetable, but these are fake health foods you must abvoid. Such oils are heavily processed and refined.

4. Reduced fat Peanut Butter:

Reduced fat peanut butter has been made very popular in recent years as it caters to people want to remain weight conscious without compromising on taste. Such peanut butters are often known to have higher calorie content than regular peanut butters.

5. Flavoured Yougurt:

You could be committing a grave mistake by going on a diet and surviving solely on flavoured yougurts thinking it is healthy. Such yougurts available in the supermarket are fake health foods which are actually loaded with sugar and flavoring agents.

I no longer eat junk food because I want to but because I have to. I guess you could call it an addiction.
