Guide to Junk Food

Cookies, brownies, cake, soda, chips and candy. These all fall into one category--junk food. To be considered a “junk food,” the first three ingredients have to be high in fat, sugar or salt.

While your diet should consist mainly of healthy foods low in fats, salt and sugar, it’s OK to indulge occasionally in a junk food choice--to declare a 100 percent moratorium on a fun-to-eat, but not good-for-you food is unrealistic, so enjoy. Just remember to keep these instances as few and far between as you can.This Junk Food Guide will show you what foods get put into this category and how to include them in an otherwise-healthy diet.

Eat small amounts of junk food.
