How much energy is in those crackers?

Crackers are easy to munch on and often, before we know it, the packet has gone! They can be higher in energy (kilojoules) than we realise, so it’s good to keep an eye on the number we eat and the energy per serve.

We compare the energy per serve of crackers with the energy in a sandwich slice of mixed grain bread (320kJ). We’ve tried to provide realistic serve sizes of the crackers, so the number and the grams per serve vary.
