Heinz creations have different syns according to the type of meal you choose, but most have between 1.5-4 syns for a half a can or pouch of their meal, this makes them fairly low in syns for a quick snack or meal.

Some of Heinz Creations meals have between 1 and 1.5 syns a serving, making them very low in syns, this is because they often contain syn free ingredients such as veg or beans, for example, Heinz Creations Spanish beans have 1 syns for the whole pouch, when you look closely at the ingredients this is because they contain simple spices and beans without too many added ingredients.
We suggest being careful with other ready meals on the market, not all are slimming world friendly like Heinz Creations and have hidden ingredients which make them very high in syns, the typical serving size for ready meals is also half or a quarter of the packet, not the full pack.
