Highlighting The Breakfast Cereals That Your Children Will Love

The vast majority of children are notorious for being fussy eaters; whilst you may feel like this is a problem that is relatively-easy to get around, at breakfast time you might find that issues persist. Despite toast having been a classic option in the past, its popularity has somewhat waned in the past few years. Thankfully, this is not a journey that you have to undertake alone. Below, you can find a comprehensive list, courtesy of the British Essentials experts, regarding the breakfast cereals that are currently flying off of the shelves.

Kellogg's Crunchy Nut

In terms of taste, it is hard for anything to match the sweet flavour that is on-offer from each-and-every mouthful of Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut. Naturally, you will want to ensure that your child grows up to be big and strong, and this can be made a reality by routinely serving them a bowl of this cereal. Although you might not realise it, this contains half of your daily requirement of Vitamin D, which is nothing short of incredible. With a dash of honey used to improve the flavour, this should be one of the first things that you put on your shopping list.

Ready Brek

Although there are certainly health benefits associated with all of the cereals that have made it onto this list, none of them come close to the fantastic nature of Ready Brek, For many years, porridge has received praise for the nutritional value that it brings to the table, and there is no-sign of this trend slowing down. With Vitamin D in abundance, as well as a dose of calcium for good measure, you can be rest-assured that your children will demolish a bowl of Ready Brek in no-time at all.


As you might have already worked out, traditionally the best cereals are based around grains. Therefore, you could do a lot worse than stocking your kitchen cupboards with box after box of Shreddies. Coming from Nestle, who have made a name for themselves by consistently producing some of the fan-favorite British breakfast foods, you don’t need to worry about there being a lack of quality. Having been around for more than fifty years, it is no-wonder that an established retailer like Marks and Spencer continues to stock this type of cereal. 


If you are desperately trying to improve your child’s diet, whilst also allowing them the opportunity to consume food that is tasty and delicious, the solution is relatively obvious - purchase a box of Weetabix. This is a cereal that can be found in the vast-majority of British supermarkets, and it is not difficult to see why this is the case. Packed full of zinc, magnesium, and fibre, a bowl of Weetabix is a fantastic way to start the day. In case you were wondering, this is also perfectly acceptable to be eaten by both vegans and vegetarians alike.
