Breakfast is such an important meal of the day; I cannot function until I have had a bowl of cereal and a strong cup of tea that’s for sure. I always make sure my boys get off to school with a decent breakfast its so important to help them focus on their studies and give them the energy they need to start the day. A healthy filling breakfast will hopefully stop us grabbing high calorie snacks (that sneaky chocolate bar you cannot resist because your tummy is grumbling!) and keep you fueled for longer.
The nutritionists would agree they recommend that breakfast should provide roughly one quarter of our daily calorie needs, and studies show those who skip breakfast may miss out on important nutrients which they are unlikely to make up during the rest of the day*.
Fortified Nestlé Cereals contain at least five vitamins and minerals and Nestlé Cereals with the green banner are reassuringly made with whole grain. So even if it’s especially manic in the morning, finding a little time to sprinkle some cereal in a bowl and add a splash of milk is well worth it!
At 24p per bowl (including milk!) they’re a great value way to help you get a good start to the day. Breakfast can be affordable and given its importance its definitely one meal you have no excuses to skip! With over two dozen different Nestle varieties to choose from, your only problem will be picking which one to have! I like to keep a selection in stock so the boys never get bored and are always enthusiastic to sit down for their morning bowl of cereal.
To ensure you don’t miss out on breakfast I am offering you the opportunity to win a month’s supply of Nestlé Cereals. If you would like to enter the competition which includes 2 x Shreddies, 2 x Shredded Wheat and 2 x Cheerio’s then please kindly leave a comment below by the 28th of January.
