Hot Cheetos and Other Spicy Snacks a Danger to Kids, Say Pediatricians

But bloggers can still eat them, right? RIGHT!?

Hot Cheetos

Bad news if you’re a small child with a Sriracha addiction. It turns out spicy snacks aren’t good for kids. Who knew!? (Everyone knew already, right?) Spicy non-food items like Flamin’ Hot Cheetos can lead to serious digestive issues in kids, which is a shame, because kids love Hot Cheetos so much they make rap videos about them.

According to Dr. Martha Rivera of the White Memorial Medical Center in Los Angeles, California kids who eat spicy snacks are setting themselves up for things like ulcers and erosion. That’s bad news, kids. We’re glad we finally had an excuse to share the “Hot Cheetos & Takis” video with you, Internet, because it’s great. We just wish it was under happier circumstances.

Now we’re a little hungry.
