Chex Mix is not really bad for you and it's considered healthy in moderation.

Chex Mix is not a healthy snack when compared to bananas, apples, carrots etc but when eaten in moderation the Chex Mix is okay to snack on.

While you may expect Chex Mix, being a snack and all, to be extremely bad for you - it actually isn't.

It may even have some health benefits.

Although Chex Mix sodium content is fairly high with nearly one-quarter of the daily recommended value per 2 oz.

Chex Mix can also improve your immune system.

When it comes to snacks the Chex Mix is one of the healthier snacks when compared to chips and other non healthy snacks.

A 1.75-ounce package of traditional Chex Mix contains 370 milligrams of sodium, 15% of your recommended daily intake. Salt by itself won't make you gain weight, but it can make you feel less trim.

Instead of the snack mix, reach for a handful of these savory spiced nuts, which are low in salt.

This healthy Chex mix is a crunchy, flavorful snack mix made with Chex cereal, multigrain Cheerios, whole grain Goldfish crackers, pretzels and nuts. It's the best healthy snack mix, ever!
