Nutrition Vampires

A Adulterated- foods that are structurally changed from their natural DNA

M Manufactured – foods that are packaged, canned or frozen with other vampires

P Processed – foods made with chemical ingredients or altered by chemical processing

I Impulsive- foods that trigger cravings like sugar, salt, and chemical additives

R Robs Health – foods that steal, deplete, and take away nutrients from the body

E Empty – foods that leave you feeling dissatisfied, guilty and regretful

Nutrition Vampires rob nutrients from the body and sabotage health and are not good for growing kids, or anyone else, for that matter. Nutrition Vampires are found in foods like chips, cookies, candy, pastries, packaged foods, gum, sports drinks, energy drinks and sodas. It is best to avoid these foods as much as possible.

Make it a habit to always read the ingredient list on the back of all packaged foods.

Watching out for Nutrition Vampire’s is about making conscious choices about the food you eat based on the quality and quantity. These kinds of food ingredients are serious business – for the food industry and for the health of you and your family so choose your food consciously.


Homemade all natural treats crafted with quality ingredients are encouraged with love.

Avoiding Nutrition Vampires is not about banning all sugar or all sweets. Just the highly processed and artificial sugars. Choose turbinado sugar, brown rice syrup, honey, molasses and maple syrup for healthier sweeteners.
