The most common processed foods are cereals, Cheese, Milk, Bread, Cookies, and Potato chips. As you consume more processed food, it can lead to poor nutrition health. Having poor nutrition health can lead to chronic illness.

Frozen meals, snack foods like chips and candy, and most beverages are processed.
