I want my 7 year old to eat healthy..........are these snacks healthy?
My son is 7 years old and for about 3 years now I've been given him his fruit snacks (he calls them chewies) to eat, for snack. there different fruit snacks like gushers or spiderman, batman, phineas and ferb snacks. different characters that he likes to watch.
reason being, on the box where they list the nurtrition information, it says 100% vitamin c which is (last time i checked) very healthy.
but over the course of 6 months, i've been told by a couple of parents that these type of snacks really isn't healthy for kids.
so i'm confused, if they aren't healthy then why does it say right on the nutrition information 100% vitamin c?
if these particular brands aren't healthy, can you suggest other ones that might be?
