Never would I buy or eat these products…and neither should you!

Always…sometimes…NEVER! No, I’m not talking about a new trivia game. I don’t like telling people to “never eat” a certain food, but there are a few you and your family should avoid at all costs. Yes, they are actually that bad.

  1. Kids’ sugary cereals: Brands like Apple Jacks, Froot Loops Marshmallow (which is over 50% sugar), Baby Shark Berries — thank you Kellogg’s! — contain HFCS, which is linked to a rise in autism and ADHD rates, BHT which is toxic chemical that can cause organ cancer, and Glyphosate, a harmful pesticide found in weed killer (!!!). 

I love Catalina Crunch, Lovebird, and Three Wishes as alternative, delicious sweetened cereals.

2. Sweetened yogurts: Yo Crunch M&M’s, Chiobani Flip Coffee Brownie, and Go Gurt Tropical Sunglow. I can’t believe these sugary, chemical loaded bombs even fall under the heading of “yogurt”. One chemical Potassium Sorbate has been shown to attack our kidneys and cause “chromosomal aberrations”. No thanks. They also contain dangerous food dyes — as a rule, if a food is neon, don’t feed it to your kids. 

I love Faye Greek Yogurt, Kite Hill Almond Milk Yogurt, Siggi’s and So Delicious Coconut Yogurt, sweetened with berries, honey, and granola. 

3. Toxic Chips: Cool Ranch Doritos, Flaming Hot Cheetos, Pringles French Fry and Ketchup, and Costco Cheez Balls. They all contain MSG which is linked to brain and nerve toxicity, metabolic disorders, and gastric ulcers. They also have Red Dye 40 which is proven to affect our brain’s “electrical activity” (that sounds scary!), cause extreme allergic reactions and IBS. So not worth it!

I love Jackson’s Potato Chips (made with avocado oil), Siete Grain Free Lime Tortilla Chips, Terra Chips, Lesser Evil Popcorn, and Beanito’s Black Bean Tortilla Chips. 

Salty and sweet snacks are not off the table — pun intended — but we just need to be choosy with our choices.
