30. Frozen meat products are often provided as a quick meal option for children, but try to avoid that habit.
Frozen chicken nuggets or fish sticks seem like a convenient way to give your kids some protein. They’re fried, bite-sized, and easy for them to feed to themselves. These munchies are especially great if you had a long day at work or a lazy weekend. However, these kinds of foods are usually flash-fried, meaning that they have much fat. Unusually high in sodium, saturated fat, and preservatives, they also contain poor-quality chicken, fish, or cheese. They’re okay once in a while, and you can choose brands with lower saturated fat content. You may also want to try purchasing brands that use whole-grain breading.
