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

Veggie Chips

Of course, vegetables top the list of healthy foods, but don't assume veggie chips (or sticks or puffs) contain the same health benefits. These snacks may be made from vegetables but they're so highly processed and full of fat, that they lose all the nutrition of real vegetables, says Ansel. However, that doesn't mean you should stock up on fried potato chips instead. Your best bet is to offer your kids freshly cut veggies like baby carrots or broccoli with fun dips such as hummus or guacamole. Save the chips -- whether they're made from potatoes or other veggies -- for special treats.
