Q&A: Should We Be Giving Our Kids Goldfish Crackers?

I received the following question on social media: are goldfish crackers GOOD for kids?

Here’s my response:

Goldfish crackers (and most crackers) are saturated in vegetable oil, heated to high temperatures creating trans fats. Trans fats damage the immune system. Cancer, heart disease eczema, asthma has been linked to trans fatty acids in the diet.

The short answer: stick to real food.
