Flash-Fried Frozen Finger Foods
Frozen chicken nuggets, fish sticks, and mozzarella sticks are usually sky-high in sodium, saturated fat, and preservatives and contain poor-quality chicken, fish, or cheese. Even though many brands are now using all breast meat or “whole muscle,” Delbridge says they’re often still flash-fried to make the batter stick, which keeps their fat and calorie counts too high for kids. If you rely on frozen finger foods from time to time, that’s okay, he adds, but sure to buy brands that use whole-grain breading and haven’t been flash-fried. You can tell that by looking at the saturated fat content.
