Curbing Chocolate Cravings
Despite recent studies indicating that certain ingredients in chocolate may provide some health benefits, nutrition experts still recommend that you consider candy a treat, not a food staple. But rather than ban chocolate from the diet entirely, clients can satisfy their sweet tooth with smaller portions that contain 100 calories or less. Here are some products that meet that criterion:
1 Fun Size® Snickers® bar (85 calories, 5 grams [g] fat)
2 pieces of Dove® Dark Chocolate Promises® (84 calories, 5.2 g fat)
4 squares (1/3 bar) of Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate (73 calories, 4 g fat)
