    On the muller website it says they are 163 calories which would make them 8 syns

    They would not be 8 syns as you could use a free food allowance of yogurt and the calories to work it out (they would still have a syn value but it would be less) you would need the nutritional value and the syns calculator online

    Derbynanny is right, the yoghurt can be used as free food

    That makes them:

    Tropical Fruit Granola: 4 Syns per package/portion
    Strawberry Granola: 4 Syns per package/portion
    Raspberry & Cranberry Granola: 4 Syns per package/portion

    But the yoghurt is not virtually fat free therefore not a free food. So surely you can't then apply a free food allowance for it?

    Yes you can because the calculator accounts for any fat that is in the yoghurt. It knows that only FAT FREE yoghurt is free - so *any* fat included in the calculation counts towards the syns.

    Thats why it only lists "yoghurt" and not "fat free yoghurt" in the Free food drop down menu selection.


    It bamboozled me at first too but its obvious when you think about it.
