"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 ;)
