Buying healthful cookies

October 20, 1991|By McClatchy News Service

If you're shopping for a healthful cookie, the Environmental Nutrition newsletter has the information you need.

The top five products, ranked according to percentage of calories from fat, were, from lowest to highest: Health Valley Fat-Free Apricot Delight Cookies (4 percent of calories from fat); Health Valley Fat-Free Raspberry Jumbos (4 percent); Nabisco Devil's Food Cakes (13 percent); FFV Devil's Food Trolley Cakes (15 percent); and Nabisco Fig Newtons (15 percent). Locally, you'll find many of these packaged cookies in health food stores as well as supermarkets.

For a copy of the study and the 31-cookie chart, send $1 and a self-addressed, business-size envelope with 52 cents postage to Environmental Nutrition, Cookies, 2112 Broadway, Suite 200, New York, N.Y. 10023.
