Most crackers can be excellent sources of extra carbohydrates – good for filling your energy stores. However, you should limit the amount of crackers you eat in order to leave room for other less processed sources of carbohydrate at meals and snacks.

If you are looking at the nutrition facts of a cracker, have 2 criteria in mind:

1.     The majority of the product is made from 100% whole grains.

2.     There is less than 5 grams of fat per 30 gram serving.
