One of the things that scares me the most as a mom is how our food is modified with artificial ingredients and additives before it hits store shelves. There are so many harmful things that are injected into perfectly healthy food, rendering them unhealthy, before they are available to use for consumption.

So, the next best thing I can is do is to try my best to avoid them. Here are seven ingredients you should always try to avoid, or eat in severe moderation. I like to carry around a list of these preservatives to make sure they’re not in any of the ingredients lists of the foods I buy!
