Packaged foods contain more chemicals, additives, sodium, fat, and other unhealthiness.
Seek fresh, sensible alternatives to packaged foods whenever possible. For instance, at a convenience store, instead of a bag of chips, crisps, or candy, buy a piece of fresh fruit or a bag of cashews or almonds.
