'Cos when it comes to the food you love well, it has to be Heinz. Spaghetti hoops A 200g serving will be enough for you to notch one fruit and veg point, so it's time to go and relive your childhood. However, hoops are also quite high in sugar - that 200g serving contains 8g of sugar - so they definitely aren't your best bet if you're trying to be properly healthy. It has a serving down as 140g per person, which is a lot less than 200g in the half tin Heinz expects you to eat. This means that Supervalu says on the front of the can that one portion has just 70 calories, while the Heinz can says there is 106 calories.
