Can I Eat Quaker Oats On The Slimming World Diet?

Porridge is a healthy breakfast to have, but not all of us have time in the morning to cook it, so ready porridge made on the go is a more convenient choice. 

Quakers are a popular choice of ready-made porridge to go for, but their packs do have syn values which have to be counted. The Quaker oats golden syrup pack has 6.5 syns for a 36g sachet, making it pretty high in syns. 

In our article below, we will cover all of Quaker's oats types and their syns below as well as how to use porridge as your Healthy Extra B and some lower syn ready-made porridge alternatives to Quaker. 

Let's get into it!

Are Quaker Oats High In Syns?

Quaker's ready-made oat packets are pretty high in syns due to the sugar and flavouring inside of them, most of the options are not under 5 syns so take up a fair amount of your daily syn allowance. 

For example, as we mentioned above their golden syrup pack has 6.5 syns while the bigger 50g version with the same flavour will set you back 9.5 syns in total. 

We will list all the different types of Quaker oats and their syn values below. 

  • Quaker Oats Jumbo Whole Rolled Oats dried 25 g – 4.5 syns.

Can I Have Oats As My Healthy Extra B?

On the Slimming World plan, you will get an allowance of a Healthy Extra B which does not have to be counted as syns for fibre intake. 

This should be no more than 40g and be plain porridge oats with no flavourings, you can make it with milk as your Healthy Extra A or with water to cut back syns then put the topping of your choice!
