OUR RATING: SO-SO

 

Eh? So-so only?

For breakfast, this should be substantial enough as it contains a little protein and carbs. As a snack, it might be a little on the heavy side, so have it if you’re really starting to feel hungry rather than a snack for when you’re bored.

Total calories of one piece: 186kcal

 

Other healthier alternatives:

You could up your fibre and protein intake with these options:

  1. A piece of wholegrain bread with peanut butter
  2. Low/no sugar tau huey (beancurd)
  3. Small handful of nuts and seeds
