Make Nutritious Snacking Choices on the Go
Movie TheatersBest pick: A child-size popcorn (about five cups). With eight grams of fiber, it will satisfy your urge to munch and keep you feeling full. It’s only 300 calories if you skip the “butter” (actually butter-flavored oil), says weight-loss counselor Molly Gee.
Another good option: Junior Mints. “There’s nothing particularly good for you in them, but they’re lower in fat than most of the candy bars at the theater,” says registered dietitian Keri Glassman. Try to share the box, says Gee, since movie-theater portions are usually gargantuan.
Worst pick: Anything jumbo size or called a value combo. For instance, that large popcorn (20 cups) with extra “butter” and a large (44-ounce) soda add up to almost 2,000 calories. An entire movie-size package of Milk Duds has 595 calories.
