2. Will eating healthy food (fruit) counterbalance eating unhealthy food?

No!

Eating one food doesn’t counterbalance another food. The body’s ability to digest, absorb, and metabolize food is complex. A combination or variety of foods is healthy. Further, foods are not “good” or “bad.” Some foods provide more nutrients than others. However, a variety of foods ensure that nutrients for growth and development are consumed, while at the same time balancing the enjoyment of flavor, texture, and color!
