For me, the 100-calorie packs aren't about filling hunger or a nutritional need. They're more about the psychological aspect of snacking. I feel as though I've eaten something, which satisfies the need, but I don't go overboard with it. I still eat plenty of other healthy snacks, and 100 calories is something I can easily spare while still getting the nutrition I need from the rest of my diet. I suspect I'll get tired of them soon, but right now they're working pretty well for me.
The price doesn't worry me that much; it costs more, yes, but not so much more that it's going to run me bankrupt. The packaging is more worrying to me. My problem is that after 8 months I still haven't managed to adjust to balancing motherhood with everything else, so I'm really short on time and energy. If I try to "just portion it out when I get home", it's likely to just stay in the big bag/box, unfortunately. I want to be eco-friendly, but I also have to be realistic about what I will actually do or not do.
