100 calorie snacks are healthy, right?

If we're looking at strictly calories, then yes it appears as a perfect snack. Unfortunately, a healthy snack is not just about watching the calories. These snacks may be high is sugar, fat, and salt, may lack many vitamins and minerals we need everyday, and cost the same as the regular-sized product. Chips were not a healthier choice in a large bag nor are they in a small package. Don't get me wrong, these snacks do have a useful purpose: portion control. When you want a sweet treat or a salty snack, you can have it without the worry or temptation to go overboard.
