Each day you are allowed 2 portions of dairy. This is to ensure your body is receiving the correct amount of calcium per day.
It can be hard keeping on top of what portion sizes and current healthy extras are available so I will try to keep this list up to date.
Please see the products below with the daily allowance next to it. Slimming World state that you can mix and match your healthy extra allowances. I.e taking half of one product and half of another. Sometimes I will have half my portion of milk in the morning and have half a portion of cheese with my dinner in the evening.
If you are a big milk drinker try switching to the Alpro almond milk.. it tastes fine in tea/coffee etc and the daily allowance is so much greater.
In January 2019 Slimming World introduced the chance to have 2 portions of Healthy extra A per day. I would personally recommend trying to have different products.. this isn’t necessary but it works well for me. So for example I would use my milk for breakfast and then a portion of cheese with my dinner.
