Halloween has ended and the candy and snacks are everywhere. Be careful to choose foods that are filled with vitamins and minerals and throw a yellow flag on foods that don’t measure up. Foods that get a yellow flag should be eaten only once or twice a month.  They are high in fat and low in iron and protein. Iron and protein help the body grow. Here are some foods that get a yellow flag!!
