A list of Girl Scout cookies ranked from healthiest to unhealthiest based on their nutritional information per cookie.
The Girl Scout Cookie season is a time of joy and temptation for many, and while nutritionists acknowledge that occasional treats are fine, it’s important to keep portion sizes in mind. Healthy eating is all about making good choices most of the time with occasional treats eaten in moderation. When deciding which cookies to indulge in, it’s important to pay attention to nutritional information, such as total calories, added sugars, and saturated fat, to make more informed choices. However, it’s also important to enjoy what you’re eating and not feel deprived. The Trefoils Shortbread and Trefoils varieties are the healthiest options, while the Caramel deLites/Samoas have the highest amount of sugar and are the least healthy. Experts suggest that instead of labeling foods as “off-limits,” it’s better to focus on an overall healthy diet, practice mindful eating, and choose cookies you truly enjoy.
