Lesser calories doesn't mean you won't get fat eating them because all calories are not created equal. Another interesting statistic that is misleading is they put the calorie count on the front of the box or state 100 calories a meal or Only 100 calories. Thenyou read the back of the label and learn that it serves for four people. Now you are eating 400 calories. They won't put the serving amount on the front of the product just the calorie per serving as if it were the best thing since slice bread. No pun intended. In proportions most things are fine to eat however thefood industry can be misleading in their advertising and calorie count.
