What 100 Calories of Fruit Looks Like

Cube Sized Melons And Honeydew

Got a sweet tooth? Don’t automatically look to brownies, cake, cookies or ice cream to cure your cravings. These sweet treats are loaded with added sugar and high-calorie fats, and while they’re fine to eat every so often, they shouldn’t be indulged in daily.

Packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and water, a small serving serving of fruit will most often give you that sweet fix you’re looking for, and for way fewer calories.

What a 100 Calorie Fruit Serving Saves You

How much will you cut by choosing fruit, you’re wondering? Swapping in a 100-calorie serving of fruit in place of a cup of ice cream could spare you 186 calories and 34 grams of added sugar. Replace fruit for a large chocolate chip cookie and you could save 220 calories and 28 grams of added sugar. Still not convinced? Trading in your bakery-bought brownie can spare you a whopping 350 calories and 42 grams of added sugar!
