Research shows that snacks in smaller packs may lead to smaller waistlines.

Nabisco, among other companies, has started marketing 100 calorie versions of its most popular products. People are using them as a handy way to curb excessive snacking between meals.

Research presented at the Obesity Society meeting this week showed that people consumed 120 fewer calories a day when they ate from the 100 calorie packs.
