Flamin’ Hot Cheetos may be banned in schools in California and New Mexico after school officials stated they are a ‘health hazard’ to the students who eat them.
One bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos contains about 700 calories and 44 grams of fat. It also has about 1,000 milligrams of sodium, which amounts to nearly half the intake of salt an adult should consume a day, according to the FDA.
Some experts are saying the Cheetos are filled with artificial flavors and coloring are “hyperpalatable,” meaning they’re highly addictive.
Teachers are also complaining about the kids sharing the snack and spreading germs. On top of that, the school janitors have more work cut out for them with cleaning up red fingerprints from the Cheetos.
