The Healthy A allowance is an essential part of the slimming world plan, it contributes to our vitamin and calcium intake and is something that really helps to add variety to the meals we can eat on slimming world. As well as dairy options, there are plenty of non-dairy options for healthy extra A, so those who are vegetarian, vegan, have food intolerances or a general preference for non-dairy are catered for.

On slimming world, we can enjoy two healthy A choices per day, since the changes announced in 2019. For me this means a small flat white in the morning, and cheese on my dinner! We are spoiled for choice. Check out the list below for options for your two healthy extra options below.
