    Hello Everyone and good morning! Could someone please tell me if I can divide the Heathly Extra A & B , for instance:-
    14 g Special K + 1 Alpen light = HXB and 125g Semi Skimmed milk + 20g Low fat cheddar = HXA
    I use the Special K to make loads of fruit and little bit 'crunchy' with low fat yoghurt. The cheddar is a portion of what I used in Lentil, Onion & Cheese Wedge.

    I can't see the problem, as I have done the same with stewed rhubarb and an alpen light, as the whole amount of rhubarb was way too much to eat.

    Yes you can. For the ultimate in healthy extra division, have a look at the SW flapjack recipe!

    The only special k that I thought was a healthy extra was the sustain one but I thought they had stopped making it??

    That's true - ordinary special K is not a HEB.

    By the way you can only split your HEs where there is only one food listed - so bread, cheese, milk are fine but not porridge because the HEb is supposed to be porridge + something else.

    I split my HExA into 175ml skimmed milk plus 3 extra light Laughing Cow Cheese or another 1/2 of a HExA as I only have a splash of milk in my tea, but don't want to use syns on it...........

    Circes does this mean I can't swap my healthy Extra for corn flakes even though they would almost be the same syns value?

    Afraid not - whether a cereal counts as a HEB depends on it's fibre content rather than it's syn value. Ordinary cornflakes do not have enough fibre to count - just the same as special K

    Just been looking for the answer to this :) I've made scan bran ferrero's and will only be eating a couple a day resulting in about 2 scan bran a day meaning I still have 3 more to eat for a HXB (thats not likely) so I can have 1 slice of nimble or 1 weetabix or 1 alpen light :) yay

    I have only a little bit of skimmed milk a day (enough to slightly colour 3 or 4 coffees) and a little 30g tub of phili light, could I count that as 1 HEA? Ad u can have 70g of phili as a HE?
