Your favourite Arnott’s biscuits ranked, from healthiest to least healthy

Arnott’s biscuits are a classic morning tea staple, and while it’s true they should all be enjoyed in moderation, dietitian Melissa Meier wants to help you make an educated choice. 

Your go-to 3pm pick-me-up from the biccie tin can have a big impact on your health and waistline. After all, many are packed to the rafters with sugar and saturated fat – both of which you want to minimise with good health in mind.

It’s probably no surprise to you that as a dietitian, I’d class biscuits as a ‘treat’ food. That means they shouldn’t be consumed day-in and day-out as part of your regular routine, but instead, wholeheartedly enjoyed occasionally and in moderation.

In reality, however, I know that’s easier said than done… so, if you’re a biscuit-a-day kinda gal, it’ll pay to make an educated choice, and that’s where this list comes in.

Behold: the 20 most popular Arnott’s biscuits, ranked from ‘healthiest’ to ‘least healthy’ (if that’s even a thing when it comes to biscuits for goodness sake!). All I can say is: I’m sorry, Tim Tam lovers…
