Calories in Two Saltine Crackers

Square, puffed Saltines may bring back memories of your childhood. You probably crumbled them over tomato soup and nibbled away the corners when you were sick. Saltines are a great snack for adults, too. The cracker is low -calorie and low-fat. Pair Saltines with a nut butter or low-fat cheese for a bit of protein.
