Here are 10 food ingredients that I never feed to my son

Here are 10 food ingredients that I never feed to my son, It is very scary to think of all the additives and chemicals that are added into our foods supply to increase product shelf life thus guarantees the bottom line of the product. It is a shame that our society has been made to believe that it is necessary; all these additives, colors, chemicals etc are actually decreasing our health.

  • Artificial colorings
  • Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
  • High sodium (we should not consume more than 2 grams/2000mg of sodium per day)
  • High-sugars/refined sugars
  • Saturated fats
  • Sodium nitrate
  • Trans fats/hydrogenated vegetable oils
  • Enriched and bleached flour (be careful because it may say “whole grain” or “wheat” on the package… it’s not necessarily 100% wheat flour)
  • High fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
  • Foods with 10 ingredients or more. Wholesome foods tend to have very few ingredients because they only contain ingredients that are essential to making that product.  For example, organic peanut butter should contain peanuts many list a lot of other unnecessary ingredients that serve as stabilizers, sweeteners and preservatives so the food can outlive our kids’ childhood. Bread should contain about 5 or 6 ingredients, HFCS (High fructose corn syrup) should not be one of them.
