People often resort to ultra-processed foods when they’re in a rush. 

However, turning away from fresh foods for the convenience of a fast meal can take a toll on our health. 

Ultra-processed foods include things like chicken nuggets, hot dogs, frozen meals, potato chips and soft drinks. 

Registered dietitians say it’s best to read food labels and avoid ingredients such as high-fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils and sulfites.

It’s also recommended to find a balance and not take an all-or-nothing approach when it comes to your diet. 

Working toward small changes can have a big impact on your health.
