35. Fruit snacks are a trendy item among children, but they are a big no-no.
You probably won’t give these fruit snacks to your baby, but as soon as your child can eat table food, you will fall victim to these little squishes. Heck, you might even enjoy munching on these as an adult. However, these seemingly-harmless little gummies contain nothing but pure sugar. Don’t buy the hype that they’re made from real juice and are fortified with vitamins and minerals; that’s just a selling point to get you to buy them. Treat these more like candy than a late afternoon snack. If you want a better alternative, get dried fruit at the grocery store or make your own at home if you have a dehydrator. Your kids won’t get any of that gummy crap stuck in their teeth, either.
