Food Tip

All chicken nuggets are not created equal. Many are high in saturated fat and sodium. Look for lean chicken and whole-grain breading.

They’re one of the most popular choices in school cafeterias, and yet chicken nuggets are all too often made with low-quality meat, are high in cholesterol-raising saturated fat and are loaded with heart-unhealthy sodium. If your kids love ’em, look for a brand that uses lean, antibiotic-free chicken and whole grains for the breading. Oven-bake them the night before, chill them, and send them to school with an ice pack. While they generally taste better warm, kids love them cold too!
