Four Not Very Healthy Nigerian Snacks We Can’t Help But Love!

This article was moved over from ConnectNigeria , Article written by: : Ify Halim
We decided to make this know to our Nigerian readers so as to keep healthy and maintain a good diet.
Find article below:

A major part of the Nigerian culture is our love for food. We are a nation blessed with hundreds of colourful and flavourful cuisines, made with tender care and love. So who can blame us?
Our locally made snacks are lovely as well, with their diverse appealing tastes, colours and textures. But sadly, some of these foods are served with side-helpings of unwanted calories. Their modes of preparation, in some cases, are also not the best in terms of hygiene.
We’ve put together a list of popular snacks that are great to eat but aren’t the healthiest of choices. Please note that we aren’t insisting you drop these snacks from your diet completely. Moderation is key to living a healthy life.

1. Gala (beef roll snack)

"I smile while writing this, knowing fully well that Gala’s my favourite guilty pleasure. This chewy snack is a quick fix when starving on-the-go but is stuffed with beef and has a unique starchy covering. Let’s not forget its fizzy accompaniment, La Casera."

 2. Puff-puff balls/Buns

"These treats are certainly yummy to eat, but let’s face it: they are fried balls of dough with a very high sugar content. Also, buns that are fried and served on the street are usually exposed to dust and insects – very unhealthy!"

 3. Chin-chin

"We love to nibble on handfuls at Nigerian parties and events. But sadly, the word chin chin is code for fried pieces of flour, loaded with salt and sugar."

4. Agege bread

"For as low as N50, a loaf of agege bread (best eaten with butter or beans) is enough to fill you up till lunch time. It’s tasty too and nicely soft-textured (especially when it’s fresh). However, its additive – potassium bromate – is said to cause cancer in humans, as warned by science experts."
