    1. Shredded Wheat

    Two points for a small bowl? Keep them coming!

    2. Pasta sauce

    Your partner says the kitchen shelves won’t be able to handle any more jars – challenge accepted!

    3. Popcorn

    A trip to the cinema just became interesting. We’ll take a large please!

    4. Oatmeal

    It tastes like cardboard but at least it’s healthy, right?

    5. Bacon

    You’ve never looked so possessed throwing packs of bacon into your trolley. It’s like an episode of Supermarket Sweep and you’re definitely winning.

    6. Cottage cheese

    One point for a cup of cottage cheese? This couldn’t be easier!

    7. Jelly pots

    You can never have enough jelly in your fridge. You’ve even gone as far as hiding them on the top shelf at the back so the kids stay clear. It’s necessary!

    8. Quark

    You’ll stir it through anything. Absolutely anything…

    9. Brown rice

    Say goodbye to white rice, it’s brown rice all the way. You even get a mini workout when it comes to shopping for it. Who needs dumbbells?

    10. Fat-free yogurt

    Anything with fat-free on the label is good in your books.

    11. Whole wheat bread

    If it’s brown and has seeds it’s acceptable. If it’s a Weight Watchers own brand, it’s even better. You’re great at this!

    12. Dates

    While the kids enjoy their after school treat you’re stuck sucking on a pack of dates. They might look odd but at least they taste good!

    13. Rice cakes

    Don’t be deceived by the word ‘cake’. They’re far from it! In fact, they’re pretty much cardboard but that’s ok – they keep the pounds at bay. That cottage cheese has got to top something!

    14. Smoked salmon

    Your freezer looks like the fish counter in your local Morrisons. It is only one point after all!
