The truth is, we are paying a lot more for these "healthy snacks" than we would if we just bought them in the regular packaging and the only thing getting thinner is our wallets! The manufacturers LOVE this new trend because they can sell us LESS product for MORE money. We are buying in because we believe that we are making healthy choices for ourselves and our children. This is simply false. We need to stop fooling ourselves.
I came across a wonderful website that VISUALLY shows us the amount of sugar we are consuming. When you visit http://www.sugarstacks.com/lowfat.htm you will see the amount of sugar in these snack packs. It is a real eye opener!
Keep your snacking simple...if it was made by nature and not processed by machines...it is a better choice for your body and your health.
