The “100 Calorie” snack packs are all the rage right now. Companies are making big bucks because we’re trying to practice portion control! I am all for anything that works. But if you took that package of cookies or chips and measured servings into individual sandwich bags, you could save quite a bit of money. On that note, I got some information on the Fruit and Veggies: More Matters website comparing what 100 calories will buy you. Now that I’m breastfeeding, I am always hungry- looks like getting to eat more is another reason for me to stock up on fruits and veggies!
