Busy parents know there's a reason prepackaged lunches for children are a $750 million dollar industry, what we might not be aware of is that the convenience could be killing our kids.

Last year, non-profit organization,The Cancer Project, confirmed what many would like to ignore: those quick, lunchtime fixes come with a dangerously high price. Along with cute mini hot dogs, bite sized pizzas and "stackable" crackers and cheese comes an unwelcome side order of saturated fats, high sodium and cholesterol -- serving up increased risk for childhood obesity, diabetes and possibly colorectal cancer.

Did you hear that? It was collective parental guilt ratcheting up a few notches.
