15 Healthy 200-Calorie Snacks

While there are the same number of calories in 28 baby carrots as there are in 9 potato chips, which of these foods do you think will keep you full longer? We've created this visual graphic to show you exactly how much you can eat of different snacks combined to equal 200 calories. You can see even more perfectly portioned foods in "What Does 100 Calories Look Like?"
 
Learning to eyeball different portions of your favorite foods will make it easier to control how much you eat when you're away from a food scale or other measuring device. You can even use your phone to snap pics of the foods you eat regularly to refer to when you're eating away from home!

no gracias on the bagel, wheat crackers, rice cakes (unless the rice cakes are wild rice or brown rice--however, i am not clear on the nutrition value of these... i have eaten the wild rice cakes when they were delivered to me by mistake... i had ordered wild rice, and i ended up with wild rice cakes) and Nutella...
