If you looked up the term "junk food" (which dates back to the 1950s), it would be defined as "any food that has low nutritional value, typically produced in the form of packaged snacks needing little or no preparation." These high-calorie snacks have often been associated with negative health effects, but - if eaten in moderation, with appreciation - shouldn't be too bad - right?
While so-called "junk food" is sold everywhere, and many of us just can't help ourselves, there's a reason it exists: taste! From childhood favorites like gummy bears and chocolate to movie snacks like hot dogs and popcorn, to comfort foods like pizza and fried chicken, junk food is often a major source of calories - if not joy - in anyone's diet.
