    If you’re trying to sneak more vegetables into your—or your kid’s—diet, swapping regular potato chips for veggie chips or sticks may seem like a healthy substitution. But nutrition experts say some of these ostensibly good-for-you snacks are just junk food in disguise.
    “Those veggie sticks are super popular at my six-year-old’s kindergarten, but they’re really no better than potato chips,” says Liz Weinandy, a staff dietitian at the Ohio State University Medical Center. “They have very small amounts of spinach or tomato paste, but they’re still a deep-fried food, and they’re not going to contribute to your daily vegetable intake in a way that supports overall health.”

    Yep, I have friends & family who fall for the old "veggie chips" thing, thinking they're eating healthier. Most veggie chips are still fried in hydrogenated oil, which is most unhealthy. Oh, and so called veggie chips cost much more than regular old potato chips. So, you end up paying more for a product that's just as unhealthy.

    But isn't the peace of mind you get from eating all those veggies worth the money?

    If you want to be healthy then it is necessary to give up veggies chips and straws because research says that are unhealthy. They are deep fried and can lead to low-grade inflammation which arise the risk of heart disease and mortality. So eat healthily, be healthy.
