Post image for Unhealthy Fridge Items

How healthy is your fridge? Of course that takeout order of fettucine alfredo is unhealthy but what about those products which you purchase at the grocery store?

According to WebMD.com, there are quite a few products that have sneakily adding in extra calories, sodium, fat and sugar into your diet. Here is a list complied by a doctor:
