2. Pepperidge Farm’s Goldfish
This is another product with a reasonable claim to be called a “healthy snack”. They are baked rather than fried which certainly helps with the overall fat content, and they are made with enriched wheat flour.
However parents should be cautious. Firstly the minerals with which the flour is enriched are generally in a form that the body struggles to absorb. This means their addition is hardly beneficial to your children. In addition the product contains various ingredients that have been genetically modified. The jury is still out on the potential long term impact of eating GM products but many experts advise us to steer clear for various health reasons.
