Chips, ice cream, and barbecue are many people's favorite snack foods; unfortunately, a lot of these delicious foods are 'junk foods.' Junk foods tend to be ready-to-eat and convenient but also contain high levels of saturated fats, salt and sugar, with little or even no nutritional value. Frequent snackers are cautioned to indulge in these sinful treats only in moderation; overdoing it might lead to weight gain, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other health problems.
