How Many Skips In 13g? And Alternative Snacking Foods

Everyone has to be guilty of getting home from work and diving into a bag of crisps, but some crisps can be very high in syns and put you over your daily syn allowance without you knowing.

Skips How Many Syns

Skips are a household favourite for a lot of us, depending on the size of the bag they come with syns of 4.5 for a 17g bag, 10.5 syns for a 40g bag and 4 syns for a 15.5g bag.

We have put together a small guide that will give you some information into how many syns your favourite crisps have and some low syn alternatives to add to your diet. To help you stick with your low-syn snacks, we have also made some healthy homemade crisp recipes below for you to try too.

Can I Eat Skips On The Slimming World Diet

Skips can be enjoyed in moderation on the slimming world diet, coming in at 10.5 syns for the largest packet, however, you have to be careful not to go over your syn allowance of 15 syns per day. 

The huge variety of flavours have 15 syns for the large bag and 4 syns for the small, so two small packs a day would put you back 8 syns. We would always recommend choosing crisps with reduced-fat or lower salt content as part of your slimming world diet.

Luckily, there is a huge range of other low syn slimming world crips on the market to snack on, so we have listed a few below.

Tips For Choosing Low Syn Crips 

You might notice on our low syns crips list that the types of crips which are low in syns often have much less weight, this is due to the fact they are healthier because they have less in the bag, but might not be as satisfying. 

Tips For Choosing Low Syn Crips

We would always suggest going for a 30g satisfying low syn bag of crips over a 13g bag which might cause you to have two bags rather than one. Pop chips such as Snack 'a' Jacks are also great because they have a lot of air, which fills you up and allows you to have more crisps in volume to eat.
