"Christopher’s Math Homework", or "I Should Eat My Words!"

So he wasn’t figuring out the caloric totals of 6 Mallomars, but one of the questions on Christopher’s 1st grade homework tonight was:


Food — Amount — Calories

bran flakes — 1 oz — 90

banana — 1 — 105

orange juice — 1 cup — 110

whole milk — 1 cup — 150

Carlos ate 1 oz bran flakes, 1 banana, 1 cup whole milk and 1 cup orange juice. How many calories did he eat? ______455_____

Now, really Carlos should have had skim milk and he could have had a Mallomar as well! Now can you figure out how many calories a glass of skim milk 😉
