It irritates me half to death when restaurants say they offer healthy options but they forget about healthy levels of sodium. Its good that they have no trans fats and lower calories and fat but to me its still not healthy if the sodium levels are still really high.

That's my soap box, plus they get heart association labels for being healthy! That's not heart healthy!

arkansas,

The AHA is one of the biggest offenders. Sorry, but Count Chocula just wasn't healthy (it's off the list now). Giving video games a heart healthy rating seems goofy as well.

frozen meals and canned soups as well - limits what someone watching sodium levels can take for a healthy lunch.
