Being a smart babysitter also means being smart about the snack foods you eat and the snacks you give to children. Sometimes I learn the hard way, by doing things that cause me problems – eating is one of those things.
I also know that young teens don’t like to be told what to eat and what not to eat. So just store this information in the back of your brain. If you occasionally read articles or watch videos about healthy eating or weight loss, it won’t be the last time you hear about this.
So here goes. Introducing what are arguably the 10 worst snack foods. Drum roll.
