iVillage.com: The 14 Worst Kids' Foods: Are They in Your Kitchen?

3 of 15

French Fries

It's no surprise that kids eat more French fries than any other vegetable. However, the trouble is that fries contain lots of fat and calories, and it's way too easy to gobble down extra servings of them. "That may not seem like a problem today, but what your child eats now is likely what they are going to be eating for the rest of their lives," explains Ansel. "Helping them develop a taste for other vegetables will ensure they don't have a weight problem -- and the health risks that come with it -- in adulthood." A healthier choice: Try baking your own fries at home or offer sweet potato fries -- they're packed with fiber, vitamin C and potassium.
