Don’t let the “veggie” part of the name fool you. These dissolve-in-your mouth, crunchy puffs are mostly made up of refined grains — corn flour, soy flour and rice are the first three ingredients. And although they boast an impressive list of vegetables (in powder form), they provide far less vitamins and fiber than a serving of vegetables. As an alternative to traditional cheese puffs, these are a good choice — just know that they don’t count as a vegetable. To satisfy your child’s craving for something crunchy, try kale chips — they deliver taste and nutrition.
