If your daily syn allowance is 15 on the slimming world plan, then you should be careful about how many rhubarb Activia yogurts you are having, just three often could take you up to 12 syns for the day which is pretty high.
As long as your syn allowance allows, however, there is nothing wrong with having one of these yoghurts for a sweet treat now and then. They are quite high in syns due to the rhubarb flavouring which adds excess sugar to the yogurt.
Some yogurts are indeed syn free on the slimming world plan, these yogurts have to be zero % fat and unflavoured, either plain Greek or plain natural style yogurt. When buying these syn free types you can add your flavourings to have more control over the syns, this could be toppings such as sweetener or berries for example.
Activia yoghurts come under the Danone brand which has a huge range of other flavours for snacking on, we have listed out the syn values for the rest of their range down below.
Danone Activia yogurts are not the only type of low syn yogurts you can find in a supermarket, we've listed out a few alternatives you can find which won't cost you too many syns.
To conclude, Activia rhubarbs are not too high in syns coming at around 4 syns a pot, this means you can have them as the occasional sweet treat without any guilt as long as your syns allow. If you want yogurts lower in syns try picking zero % fat versions instead.
