Deli Meats: Safe or Scary?
Salami: Also a processed meat, salami, like bologna, should be eaten only rarely, if at all.
Roast Beef: Roast beef is a much better option as it contains no nitrates and has a fraction of the salt and saturated fat of a processed meat like bologna. But it's still a red meat, so roast beef shouldn't be daily fare for your child.
Turkey: With half the saturated fat of red meats and no nitrates, plain roasted turkey breast is the best choice when it comes to cold cuts. Choose a brand with the fewest ingredients: organic varieties tend to contain nothing more than turkey breast, water, and salt, while mainstream brands can also have sugar and various additives.
