Health advocates and even some food industry critics say the growing availability of 100-calorie packages of certain snack foods is an excellent way for consumers to watch their diets. "... 100 calories is a brilliant idea. This is one package. People will eat one package, no matter how big it is. You can have every single thing in it, and it will only be 100 calories," said Marion Nestle, a nutritionist and author. Some snacks include Maybud farmer's semi-soft cheese, and Edy's Smoothie fruit and yogurt bar.
