Kids, Parents Warned About Dangers of Spicy Snack Foods

Many parents and kids in the Dallas-Fort Worth area have walked down the snack aisle at their local supermarket or grocery store and seen the “spicy” or “crazy” potato chips that are available. These chips come in odd shapes, bizarre colors -- and are loaded with preservatives and additives that make them, shall we say, “less than ideal” for your diet.

While consuming these snack foods every once and a while may not be the worst thing for you, having a diet that centers on these spicy snack foods can be dangerous. Many pediatricians and health experts are now warning about the potential dangers these foods pose to young kids. The flavors and ingredients of these foodstuffs can cause serious gastrointestinal problems in kids during their developmental years, including ulcers, erosion of stomach or intestinal lining, and other extremely unpleasant (and harmful) medical conditions.

As a result, many school districts have outright banned these food items in their schools. It's a combination of their dangerous potential (due to the spicy additives) and their lack of nutritional sustenance (the nutrition facts for many of these foods could be considered as “very poor”).

So for families in Dallas, in Texas, and really all across the country, it is important to know the risks involved in placing that bag of spicy snacks in your pantry or on your shelves. There is a legitimate product liability scare here, as these foods pose a risk to our kids at a time when they are supposed to be growing, both mentally and physically. The last thing they should have to worry about is a scary medical condition that forces them to take multiple trips to the doctor.
