Read Label Before Purchasing these Foods

#10 Energy and Protein bars  |||| Today many of these bars contain high fructose corn syrup and other added sugars. While they may contain a fair amount of protein, many have negligible amounts of fiber, which means that you will not stay full for very long. A few of these bars have calorie counts that are the size of an entire meal, while some also have a high saturated fat or trans fat content.

#9 Enhanced water |||| A few of these vitamin and nutrient enhanced waters are just that: enhanced. However, the majority are simply using deceptive tactics to make us think they are healthy. Meanwhile they contain unnecessary sugar or unhealthy sugar substitutes and excess carbohydrates. Why not enhance your own water with fruit and take a multivitamin instead?

#7 Non-dairy creamers ||||  Many of these creamers contain unnecessary corn syrup solids and partially hydrogenated oil. Some also have Dipotassium phosphate on their ingredient list, which is also an ingredient sometimes used in pesticides. Several of these creamers contain trans fats and extra sodium too.

#8 Granola ||||  Look for a granola that does not have sugar or added sugars, hydrogenated oils, or high-fructose corn syrup in the ingredient list. You should not need added sugar in the form of syrup, molasses, honey, or agave either, because it is the whole grains, seeds, and nuts that makes granola healthy.

#6 Packaged sliced meats |||| For our convenience, companies have started to put the slices in pre-packaged containers so we can avoid the deli counter. However, that packaging process also often means adding preservatives to keep the products lasting longer. Extra sodium is often added as well. Check that package before you put it in your cart.

#4 Peanut butter |||| However, both full fat and reduced-fat peanut butters often contain about the same amount of calories. And both typically contain unnecessary added sugars, oils, and preservatives. Often the reduced-fat variety actually has more sugar, so be sure to read those labels carefully.

#3 Popcorn |||| Many brands of ready-to-pop popcorn contain a flavoring agent called chemical diacetyl which triggers a severe lung disorder known as popcorn lung. Popcorn which comes in ready-to-pop bags is often made of paper that is coated with a chemical to keep the bag intact when heated. That chemical breaks down to a substance called perfluorooctanoic (PFOA), which some feel may be potentially carcinogenic. | Babble - Read Label Before Purchasing these Foods

#5 Pasteurized fruit juices |||| Do not be fooled by the term pasteurized or, for that matter, natural. While they may contain a day’s worth of certain vitamins, too many juices contain extra sugars, added sodium, or artificial sweeteners. The vitamin content should come from the fruit itself, so there is no reason to add more ingredients. Consider going for the whole fruit and a glass of water instead.

#2 Yogurt  ||||  Parents often turn to yogurt as a great source of protein for kids, but many of them also have upwards of 20 grams of sugar in one serving. Some even have sodium and oils added to the ingredient list. Also, just because it is greek yogurt that does not mean it is healthy yogurt. You should still read those ingredient labels when you purchase yogurt for your family and keep an eye on those added sugars.

#1 Whole wheat bread |||| The bread may look healthier, but if you are not reading those labels carefully you might still be taking in the unhealthy variety. Read the ingredient labels carefully. If the first two or three ingredients on the list say "bleached" or "unbleached enriched wheat flour" it means that the unhealthy variety is still in there.
