Big W's after-school snack attack

Big W is advertising after-school snacks in its back-to-school catalogue. But how nutritious are they?

Snack attack

A fabulous Facebook post from Vegie Smugglers, humorously rejecting Big W's take on suitable after-school snacks, caught our attention earlier this week.

We decided to run the numbers and calculate health star ratings for the products advertised in the Big W Back to School catalogue to see exactly how nutritious they are.

Kids may think these snacks are delicious, but are they really suitable to serve up to kids when they get home from school, hungry and needing something to keep them going until dinner? This is what we found.
