How Many Football Fields are in an M&M?
Linda Rankin, RD at Idaho State University, shares with us her best food fact – M&Ms are really football fields! One M&M is approximately three calories and in order to burn off those three calories, you would need to walk or run the length of one football field or 100 yards. What about a peanut M&M? Linda says you would need to walk or run the length of two football fields to burn the calories from one peanut M&M.
