Dangers of “healthy” snacks
Even snacks marketed as healthy or natural can be unhealthy. Fat-free chips and sweet snacks typically deliver a lot of rapidly digested carbohydrates, which cause blood sugar levels to rise quickly. Yogurt raisins can be packed with bad fats and sugar. Many baked or fat-free snacks have lots of salt. Eating these foods occasionally won't hurt, but eating them often can take its toll on your health and waistline.
