If you are having some trouble finding slimming world-friendly snacks, or maybe you are making a cheeseboard with your healthy extra A's (check our guide here), you might be wondering how high in syns breadsticks are on the SW plan?
Breadsticks can have varying syns according to their ingredients and size, on average, they have around 1 syn per stick, making them a great low-syn snack.
We've discussed in further detail below how many breadsticks you can eat on the slimming world plan, syn values of them and some other crackers/dipping foods as low-syn alternatives.
Why Are Breadsticks So Low In Syns?
At just 1 syn per breadstick, these snacks are very SW-friendly, allowing you to have up to 15 on the plan before using all of your 15 syn daily allowance. Breadsticks are generally low in syns thanks to their thin portion size and basic ingredients.
You should also take into account the syns of what you're dipping your breadsticks in too since this can add further calories. We have a good syn guide to dips like hummus here.
