Tips & Notes

  • Tip: Not all hot dogs are created equal. Reaching for the right brand in the grocery store can have a huge impact on your intake of fat and sodium. For a healthier hot dog, choose one that’s no more than 150 calories, has 3 grams or less of saturated fat and 370 mg or less of sodium.
