by Trendy

If you have not heard about GoodGuide.com, it aint too late. I hadn’t heard about it till a few weeks ago and now i am hooked onto it.  According to their About Us page – “GoodGuide provides the world’s largest and most reliable source of information on the health, environmental, and social impacts of the products in your home.

GoodGuide.com was founded by Professor Dara O’Rourke of the University of California-Berkeley. Dara is also a parent and like most of us looks at the ingredients label real close before using it for his family. Sometimes the labels can be too confusing for many of us as we might not understand or know some of the ingredients listed in a product. GoodGuide makes it easy for us and decrypts every thing into layman terms. You will be surprised when you know the real content of some of the products we use daily. So check out GoodGuide.com and make sure you also check out their iPhone app. I use their iPhone app almost every time i am at the grocery store.

Today, GoodGuide.com sent out an email with a list of five snack foods you should avoid. This list is a part of their “What’s in it?” series. Here are the products from that list that you should avoid.

1. Chef Boyardee Macaroni and Cheese (Too much Sodium)

I was surprised at the Yoplait Strawberry Yogurt being on this list. I don’t eat any of the other snacks listed and always prefer fruits and yogurt as snacks. The Yoplait Strawberry Yogurt is something i have preferred for the last few years and is always on my grocery list. I am sure many of you also love this yogurt.After seeing that it has mercury in it, i don’t think i will eat it any more. Will have to search for alternatives or eat some home made yogurt instead.
