    Hi just a bit confused here :confused:. For my breakfast I eat x2 Oatibixs rather than Weetabix. Weetabix x2 biscuits can be used as a Healthy Extra but there is nothing for Oatibix so I always have to put them down as a syn, which is 9 syns :eek:! This uses nearly all my allowance. Does anyone know if they can be used as Healthy Extras ?? Thanx :)

    I had a look at the online food diary as they have a full list of thre current heB's and only thing I could see was 28g of any variety of oatibix bites and 1 ryvita wholegrain CB

    I think you can have 28g of Oatibix Bitesize with a Ryvita Wholegrain Crackerbread.

    I like both, but prefer Oatibix. Have had to go back too Weetabix now so I can count them as a Hex :(

    Yes I saw that online also but I don't want a ryvita I just want 2 Oatibix, I would settle for Bitesize but how much extra can I get if I don't have the Ryvita I wonder:confused::confused: Oatibix keep me satisfied for so much longer than weetabix:)

    Oatibix full size isn't a healthy extra because each biscuit is bigger than weetabix so if you have 2 it'll come to higher calories than if you had 2 weetabix. This is why they say you can have 28g oatibix bitesized but not the 2 standard biscuits. Weetabix x 2 is 6 syns and as you say oatibix x 2 is 9 syns so you can have the oatibix and call it a healthy extra + 3 syns since it is a healthy extra anyway, you're just having more than stipulated in your books which you are synning. Hope that makes sense lol.

    Isn't it something to do with the fibre content too?......I'd have thought thats why you need to have the ryvita with it to make up the right amounts to make it a 'healthy extra' ?
