Milk Although always a better choice than soda, whole milk is the largest source of saturated fat in children's diets. Healthier Choice: Fat-free or 1% milk.
Fruit Applesauce and fruit cups are kid favorites but can be drenched with calorie- and sugar-laden corn syrup. Healthier Choice: Whole fruit or homemade fruit salad is always the best choice. Or look for fruit snacks without added sugar.
Fruit Strips These chewy treats might seem like a healthy dessert, but they often contain more sugar than fruit. Healthier Choice: Read labels carefully to find strips that are all fruit, like Tropicana FruitWise.
