“Discretionary calories”

Depending on the foods you choose, you may be able to spend more calories than the amount required to meet your nutrient needs. 

These calories are the “extras” that can be used on luxuries like solid fats, added sugars or on more food from any food group.

They are your “discretionary calories.”
