    Fat: 3.2g

    cereal doesnt have a free food allowance so it will be 1 syn for every 20 calories, making it:

    9.5 syns for whatever measure the nutritional information is for.

    I think you are getting confused by healthy extras, fibre isn't taken into account for working out syns. Healthy Extras are carefully chosen by slimming world by a number of factors. Fibre being the main one for Healthy Extra B's. But unfortunately we can only use the ones they provide on the list as a Healthy Extra, there is no calculation to work out our own. However you can contact Slimming World to enquire if a food item you have found can be a Healthy Extra. But I would say looking at the nutritional information you have provided, slimming world will say it can't be, as the fibre is very low.

    For syns, all the foods below, have NO free food allowance:

    Alcoholic drinks
    Biscuits, including cereal bars and savoury crackers
    Bread & crispbreads
    Breakfast cereals
    Cakes & bakery items, e.g. carrot cake
    Crisps & snacks
    Dressings & dips, e.g. salsa, salad dressing
    Fruit - canned, dried and stewed
    Pastry products (sweet & savoury), e.g. salmon en croute, apple pie
    Pizza
    Puddings & desserts
    Sandwich/deli fillers
    Sandwiches and wraps
    Sauces, e.g. jars of tomato-based pasta sauce
    Soft drinks, including yogurt drinks fruit/vegetable juice and fruit smoothies
    Soups, all varieties
    Sweets & chocolates

    which means you can work out the syns by using 1 syn for every 20 calories.

    Anything else (i.e. foods WITH a free food allowance) must be worked out using the syns calculator.
