Frozen food are extremely unhealthy as they contain hydrogenated palm oil and preservatives like syrups, opine health experts. The frozen foods also contain a lot of sodium which creates health issues and can be dangerous when over-consumed.

Frozen foods are a big risk; eating fresh light meals are healthy. Salads must also be eaten fresh along with some fresh fruits and these can prove to be a good filler for the in-between-meals- hunger.
