If you are looking for some new healthy cereal to have in the morning, you might be wondering if oatibix is syn friendly on the plan?
Oatibix does have syns on the slimming world plan, a two biscuit serving can cost you 9 syns, while a 30g serving of the flaked cereal has 6 syns, making them both a very high syn cereal which should be had as the occasional treat.
Down below in our short guide, we will discuss why oatibix is so high in syns, why you can't use this cereal as your healthy extra B, syn values of oatibix and some low syn oat-based alternatives from other brands.
Both types of main oatibix cereals have between 6 and 9 syns, making it a very high syn cereal, this is because firstly oatibix is high in carbs since its made up mostly of oats, but it's fairly high in sugar too, with the average serving having up to 4g of sugar and 3g of fat.
For their mini biscuits, you could have up to three oatibix before using up all your daily syn allowance or two servings of their flaked cereal, you should also consider the milk you are using since this will need to be synned unless using it as your healthy extra A.
Since oatibix is fairly high in fibre due to being made with wholegrain oats, you might be wondering why you can't use it as your healthy extra B? This is because the fibre it provides is quite low, having around 2g a serving for their frosted type cereal.
We've listed some types of cereal you can use as your healthy extra B below.
Oatibix has a few different syn values according to the type you buy, to help you out we've listed their syn values down below.

Overall, Oatibix is a very high syn cereal for both their flaked version which has 6 syns and the biscuit version which has 9 syns for a two biscuit serving! It should also be noted their flaked cereal is quite high in sugar and fat, having 4g of sugar a serving.
