Nairn's On The Go Mini Cheese Oatcakes Review

Nairn's on the go mini cheese oatcakesNairns are best known for their delicious range of oatcakes. But they also make oat biscuits and oat crackers.

I recently discovered a new addition to their expanding collection – Nairn’s On The Go Mini Cheese Oatcakes.

Any food that has a ‘mini’ version gets my attention as it usually means mini calories too! Nairns On The Go Mini Cheese Oatcakes can be found in a box with 5 bags of mini oatcakes. Each bag is worth 110 calories.

Weetabix Range, Nutrition, Calories and Ingredients

Weetabix have such a wide range of breakfast cereals, I have decided to update my earlier Weetabix post (How healthy are your Weetabix) to reflect what's available in the supermarkets today.

Original Weetabix breakfast biscuits are still at the top in the 'healthy' ratings with a green traffic light symbol for low sugar, fat, saturated fat and salt. But there's a newer addition called Weetabix Protein which also scores a full house for green traffic lights - (you can see the nutritional information further in this post) and it has nearly double the amount of protein of regular Weetabix.

For this post I've included nutritional details for the whole range of Weetabix including Ready Brek and Oatibix. To date, there are 24 varieties!

Public Health England Calorie Awareness Campaign

Public Health England (PHE) have recently released a new strategy and campaign designed to slow down the obesity epidemic in this country. Their main focus is on calories.

They have launched the One You Campaign, targeting adults to become aware of the calories they consume each day. They’ve come up with the mantra 400, 600, 600. This relates to allowing ourselves a maximum of 400 calories for breakfast, 600 calories for lunch and 600 calories for dinner.

While I’m all for counting calories, as far as I’m concerned, these numbers are as meaningless as the old mantra ‘2,000 calories a day for women and 2,500 calories a day for men’.
