Slimming World new healthy extra A list
Slimming World announced changes to Healthy Extra A’s back in November 2018.  The key changes they noted were:
  • An additional Healthy Extra ‘a’ choice each day on the Extra Easy plan for even more calcium and choice (Healthy Extra choices are those foods that, alongside our famous Free Food, support an overall healthy balanced diet by providing calcium, fibre, other essential minerals and healthy oils)
  • To boost calcium intake, there’s an increase in the amount of whole cow’s milk, to 200ml per day within the Healthy Extra ‘a’ allowance
  • As more products are now available in the market, the overall average nutrition profile of rice and almond milk has changed, so Healthy Extra ‘a’ portions of these have decreased to 225ml and 400ml respectively
  • Some products, including sweetened dairy-free milk, reduced-fat/light soft cheese and soft goat's cheese, are no longer classed as Healthy Extras.
To make your life easier, we’ve created this list of what counts one portion of your Healthy Extra A.
