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!

Thanks for sharing Report

What a great article. It not only shows the amount of each snack to consume but also the plate size for reference. We downsized our dishes a couple of years ago for just this reason. Report
