Belvita is a popular breakfast biscuit in the UK and is regarded as a healthy snack and source of fibre to keep you going throughout the day, but since these are not free food on the slimming world plan you need to ensure you are tracking their syns.
Belvita biscuits in strawberry flavour have 9 syns per biscuit, making them very high in syns so you should only be eaten in moderation when you have enough room in your syn allowance.
To keep you on track with your diet, we've made a small guide below which will take you through why Belvita strawberry biscuits are so high in syns, the other syn values of the Belvita range and some low syn alternative breakfast biscuits to have on the SW plan.
Why Are Belvita Strawberry Biscuits So High In Syns?
At 9 syns for a 50g serving, Belvita strawberry biscuits are extremely high in syns and take the majority of your 15 syn daily allowances. This is down to the high sugar and carb content inside of the biscuits which increase the calories and therefore the syns.
We would not suggest having these for breakfast as it is a huge amount of syns, instead opt for some porridge or banana then have these as an occasional treat.
