  • Great guideline to follow
  • SPIEGY I agree with you. Although, Iā€™m wondering if there talking about the blueberry muffins that they have, that you can make. The have cinnamon
    šŸŽ some kind of chocolate šŸ« ones also. I forgot the chocolate ones name.
  • This was helpful only to a degree. 13 strawberries are not 100 calories (more like 50-60) and 1/2 a muffin is definitely not 100 calories. Most store-bought muffins are huge and from what I have seen are between 400-800 calories. So use some common sense when using this list and actually look up the calories of what you are eating.
  • It would be great if I could actually stick to the measured amount without going back again and again!
  • this helps me to see how much 100 calories really is ....thanks

    This is a great article, especially for people new to all of this stuff. Remember that carrots need to be boiled in order for your body to absorb the vitamin A from them. And quit complaining because they show chips, be real, most people don't stick to so called healthy foods 100%, and there is good reason for that......
  • I have this list pinned. Great list!!

    Really helpful!!!
  • Will print off this handy list!
  • Good info but a snack should stil be a healthy one that nourishes the body. Empty calories from chips add no value and often contain harmful elements.
  • thanks for the information. It is very helpful.
  • Its a nice list for showing an estimate of calories. It is disappointing that some items are included in a rather small quantity, like 1/2 banana.
  • I agree with RICKISMOM. These are general calories, but will almost definitely vary depending on brand, size, and ingredients. It's a visual article about how calories are broken down depending on snack choice, but you still need to be diligent in checking the nutrition info of each product you buy. String cheese does seem to vary in calories. The Frigo brand's Light version is 60 calories I believe, but there are others that are 80 calories, so clearly a difference. SP cannot account for every variation of course, but it is nice to get a general understanding of how much you really get with these different snacks.
