Caloric content of the subgroups of newly developed Choices snacks compared with reference snacks. The subgroups of Choices snacks and their selected reference products, derived from the Dutch Food Composition Database (2006) and portion sizes, were the following: - Choices: licorice - reference: licorice average (10 g). - Choices: non-dairy ices - reference: non-dairy ices (53 g). - Choices: savories - reference: prepared croquette (44 g). - Choices: fruit drink snacks - reference: fruit 2/day (200 ml). - Choices: ice creams - reference: vanilla ice cream (72 g). The caloric content of Choices snacks was compared with the reference products using one-sample t-tests. The caloric content of all subgroups of Choices snacks were found to be significantly lower than the reference snacks, with the exception of fruit drink snacks and savory snacks, which remained the same.
