Post-Christmas feasting is cutting very close to Chinese New Year feasting this 2017, with Jan. 28 and 29 being the first two days of the New Year in the Chinese calendar.

As snacking has commenced again and there is no such thing as “just one” because it will be an exercise in futility, here is a handy cut-out-and-keep guide showing the calorie content of CNY snacks that is the equivalent to an average bowl of white rice containing 225 calories.

Note: On average, a woman requires around 1,800 calories a day while a man requires about 2,200. This number is also dependent on your lifestyle choices and daily activities.
