Patient discussion about junk

Q. If she really has sufficient amount of protein and other minerals with the kind of junks she is having now? My 12-year-old daughter is crazy about fast foods and snacks very badly that she does not eat her timely meals properly. Of late, her hair has been dropping quite drastically and I worry that if she continues with the same pattern that she is following now she may lose her health. I was wondering if she really has sufficient amount of protein and other minerals with the kind of junks she is having now?

A. Pickles and olives are not that junk, although they may contain high amounts of salt (sodium) that may exacerbate hypertension. Regarding the rest of the foods you listed, well, they aren't the best thing to eat- a lot of calories and fat, without satisfying your appetite.
