Are Annie's products good for my child?


Joanne Perez, MS, RDN, LD

It depends on which products, how much and when they are eating them. I would grade most of the products average and they can fit into a healthy eating plan when eaten in moderation and supplemented with other whole, non-processed foods. Some examples would be a serving of the mac & cheese with some steamed broccoli and fruit or a serving of the bunnies with and apple and string cheese. It's important to remember that all foods can fit into your child's diet, and you want your child to understand that there are no good or bad foods. But, it is also important that they get all of the nutrients they need to keep their bodies developing and functioning and empty calories from sugary and non-nutrient foods may fill them up and replace more nutirent dense choices.
