10 Worst Foods for Your Kid's Lunch Box

4 of 12

Starchy Snack Bars

These convenient foods, such as Pop Tarts and Quaker Chewy Granola Bars, can contain well over 15 ingredients. The more ingredients that a product has, the further it strays from “real” food, and the more chemicals and sugars you’ll find in it. Choose a prepackaged product that offers whole grains, fruit and fiber, such as KIND bars, Odwalla bars, Clif snacks, Nature's Valley granola bars, Annie's granola bars, and Cascadian Farms Organic granola bars.
