      Chips are very high in fats, especially a type of fat called saturated fat. If we eat more fats than we need to eat to get energy then our body stores these extra fats in our bodies (in certain areas like our tummies).

      Cholesterol is another substance that we can eat too much of and this can build up inside our blood vessels and stop our blood from flowing properly.
