Doctors Want You To Stop Allowing Your Children From Eating Hot Cheetos — Here’s Why

So dangerously good. No, I’m not talking about chocolate – its the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos I was referring to.

Doctors are now advising consumers, particularly parents, on the dangers of overdose. All the more to help your child kick that snacking habit for good. Overindulging on this particular flavor of Cheetos can cause one to wind up in the hospital due to gastrointestinal issues.

Dr. Kathleen Berchelmann, a resident doctor from St. Louis Children’s Hospital, explains that these snacks were manufactured with various taste bud additives such as salt, sugar and saturated fat. Children, in most cases, tend to consume an entire bag of Cheetos without any element of self-control.

All the hot spices used to flavor this particular snack could cause damage to your intestines in the long run, such as acid reflux and heartburn sensations. The spices from the Cheetos gets stuck along the walls of your gastrointestinal tract, potentially causing pain to rise to the chest from the upper abdomen. The red dye used to color this snack could even turn your stools the exact same color!

Think twice before you indulge in any processed food; particularly fatty snacks.
