No matter how you try to spin it, eating a bag of veggie chips does not provide you with your vegetable intake for the day.

In fact, veggie chips have been found to be no better than potato chips.

They could end up being worse because people who believe they’re snacking on health food will end up having a larger serving.

If you want a truly healthy vegetable snack, munch on celery and carrot sticks.
