Growing up, I was a pretty healthy eater. But like most kids, I also delighted in junk food in doses — donuts every Sunday morning and an occasional trip to McD's .

Today, kids are bombarded by sugary and preservative filled advertisements that make the snacks nearly impossible to avoid. Even global mama Angelina Jolie is guilty of feeding her tots bags of potato chips.

Aside from kids loving the tasty treats, they offer many busy moms a convenient short cut, which is why many parents fall back on them.

Are you guilty of the quick fix, too?
