Should Your Family Eat This or That?
Chocolate or Vanilla?
The better choice: Vanilla.
"Chocolate products contain a small amount of caffeine," notes Melinda Johnson, M.S., R.D., a spokesperson for the ADA. "If a child overdoes it with chocolate, he may be a bit more wired than usual. Most adults won't feel the effect."
Keep in mind: Birthday treats are just that―treats. Let kids have no more than one slice of cake, which is packed with saturated fat, and one scoop of ice cream.
