Of these three, guess which snack is the healthiest?
A bag of Fritos
A multigrain bagel
An ice cream code
Some would say, "the ice cream has dairy!" Others would say "multi-grain means healthy". The bag of Fritos... maybe "it has corn."
What do you think?
A study from Tufts University found foods often considered unhealthy are actually more nutritious than you might expect. The winner of the healthiest study found corn chips to be the most healthy of the three.
The Tufts’ Friedman School of Nutrition and Science has come up with their own nutrition scale that says the ice cream and a bag of Fritos are both healthier than that multigrain bagel.
What they found is many things considered "unhealthy" were actually better for you than foods that many of us think are healthy. They created a healthiest scale of 1-100 (100 being the healthiest). Check out some of these surprising results.
