According to research by Columbia University, 64 calories is the average number of calories a child or teen needs to cut from their diet in order for them to meet the federal goals for slashing obesity by 2020. If this doesn’t happen, the typical child would weigh 4 lbs more in 2020 than they do now, and would put childhood obesity at 20% (presently at 17%).

Simple ways to cut 64 calories a day:

  • 4 oz. juice

  • one Oreo cookie

  • a third of a Pop Tart (210 calories in just 1- Don’t even bring them in the house!!)

  • 1/2 cup Honey Nut Cheerios

  • 1/2 serving of Goldfish
