The bad stuff
Trans fat has no known health benefits and can be found in many types of takeaway food, ready-made meals (from the frozen food section), snack foods such as chips and in commercially-made cakes and biscuits.
A diet with lots of trans fat will reduce your child’s good cholesterol and increase bad cholesterol. You want their diet to avoid trans fat.
