How much energy is in that cracker snack

Healthy Food Guide takes a look at which cracker and topping combos will satisfy for longer.

Feeling hungry between meals and looking for something filling? Choosing crackers with hummus or cheese can be an easy way to fill up. We looked at 10 popular crackers to see how much energy we’d find in a snack-sized serving of crackers with three different toppings.

We ignored the packet serve size and looked at what we’d actually eat. Which was just as well, because we found, sometimes, the serving size stated on the packet was over-sized for the snack we needed. Lighter rice crackers are lower in energy and we need a few more to fillup. The higher-energy crackers were stuffed with seeds and fibre, giving a delicious, chewy and filling snack in only three or four crackers.

Watching your weight? Choose a snack with around 600kJ or less. For others, 700kJ-800kJ is fine, while active people will likely need more.
