Rejoined yesterday and loving the new plan (was a member back on the day of green /red days). Having just tucked into 2 Weetabix and skimmed milk I've realise to my horror that's 6 syns gone ��...I'm sure it used to be a B choice...Can I get away with treating it as one?

Surely it's because of all the sugar?

I think it's the sugar too.

I wouldn't treat it as a B choice. You're just cheating yourself! Record it properly, plan the rest of the day accordingly.

I thought it was a b choice?

Interesting about the sugar, thanks! Just tempted because it used to be on the B list 8 years ago. Maybe the ingredients have changed, or it's not deemed acceptable now? I remember when tinned spaghetti was free �� Tbh I am going to struggle with not having 2 B choices now but looking forward to the challenge smile

It is a hexb just checked on the app for you (and hexa for your milk)

In my book its a B Choice. I joined in Feb this year.

But it's not in the book as a B choice? (though Weetabix minis are..) hmm

Tinned spaghetti is still free too I'm sure, where are you getting your information from

Flisspaps Sun 09-Aug-15 09:35:26

Website shows it as HExB but the online list on the HE link on the website doesn't include it.

They're HExB in my book, and I count them as my HExB

Ah 2days its under the crisp breads and cereals section and not the cereals!!! Thank you grin Good old sugar filled Weetabix! Odd it's not listed by the other Weetabix varieties.

Tinned spaghetti also free (which is a win as I didn't know that!) grin

When I was last in class the tinned spaghetti was taken 'off' for a while but obviously now back on. Not a deal breaker for me anyway but good to know it's still there.

I use Weetabix as hexb. I make Weetabix muffins for breakfast.

It is a healthy b but if I remember correctly it's in a really stupid place in the book, don't have my book to hand to check but I think it is under grab and go section (or something like that) rather than being listed with the other cereals

Perfectlypurple could I have your muffin recipe please?

Perfectlypurple Sun 16-Aug-15 17:30:41

2 Weetabix
Half a miller light (one that is on the free list - I use the vanilla or toffee one)
1 egg
6 tsp sweetner( I find it too sweet so maybe just use 1 tsp)
Put into muffin tins. 1 mix does 3 bake in preheated oven at 180 for about 25 mins. They sometimes need a bit longer if a skewer doesn't come out clean.

It's a b choice but try loading up with fruit and cutting down to just 1 if you want to save half your b choice (I do 1 weetabix and 1 small wholemeal slice of bread for my b choice most days.
