Do you let you kids have Ding Dongs and other “snacks”

Posted on Posted in Children and Food

Let me answer your question with a question.

Would YOU eat something that can sit in a package and NEVER go bad?

Would you put something in your body that can sit for YEARS and never mold or decompose?

Would you eat something that has:

Calories 360  – this is the same as a small breast of chicken, potato and salad.

Total Fat 19 g – (total daily is 20 g)

Saturated Fat 12 g (that’s one of the bad ones: Saturated fats raise total blood cholesterol as well as LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol)

Cholesterol 15 mg

Sodium 240 mg (that’s more than 25% of daily recommended)

Total Carbohydrate 44 g (The same as 3.6 slices of bread)

Dietary Fiber 2 g (kids age + 5 so a 5 year old should eat 10g)

Sugars 32 g (that’s 6.7 teaspoons)?

I know I wouldn’t NOR would I give it to my children.

But you are the parent, you can decide.
