Food and nutrition myth about low-fat foods

23 March, 2012 , ,

MYTH: If a food is low in fat or fat-free, it must be healthy

THE TRUTH: Just because a food is low in fat or fat-free doesn’t mean it’s healthy. In fact, a lot of foods that are low in fat are definitely not healthy choices, such as candy, pop, low-fat cookies and fat-free frozen treats. While these foods may have little fat, they can still be high in sugar and calories and offer few, if any, nutrients. There are, however, some foods that are higher in fat and a healthy choice, such as fish, avocados, nuts, seeds and nut butters. Choose foods wisely: Read food labels and consider a food’s overall nutrient content. Don’t judge a food by fat alone!
