    Hi guys

    Can someone help me please! I really want to know just how bad these two items are - can someone help me out by running the nutrition data through syns online? Please?!

    Nature Valley Oats n Honey - they've got quite a bit of fibre in them so I'm hoping I can use them for a healthy extra and syn the rest?
    Serving size 42g
    Calories 190
    Fat 6g
    Carbohydrate 29g
    Fibre 2g
    Protein 4g

    Soupy rice noodles (local product) - I guess the rice noodles mean that I can count noodles as a free food allowance?
    Serving size 29g
    Calories 99
    Fat 4.2g
    Carbohydrate 12g
    Fibre 1.2g
    Protein 2.7g

    Anyone able to help?:)

    The cereal can be worked out using 1 syn for every 20 calories. Sorry I can't help with the noodles but I'm sure someone else will be able to soon.

    Thanks, I knew about the quick conversion for snacks, which would also make the noodles 5 syns, but wondered if there was someone out there who had access to run it through the advanced search by putting in all the nutrition data - I know that that can bring some snacks down in syns because they count the fibre balance...

    Thanks for your help:)

    The amount of fibre in a product does not affect the syn value - for things with no free food allowance, like the cereal as well as snacks, they use the 1 syn for every 20 calories rule. That is the way they work it out on the website as well.

    The noodles will have a free food allowance so you can't use that calculation and someone will need to work it out for you.

    2½ Syns per package/portion on Extra Easy
    2½ Syns per package/portion on Green
