is creeping closer (as much as I want to hide my head in the sand and pretend
it isn’t!) and I am starting to think its time to take my health more
seriously. I was very pleased to be
sent the new Cheerios Oat Crisp® to review
as let’s be honest my diet could be improved considerably – starting with the
most important meal of the day, breakfast…
It’s easy to get stuck in a bad
habit, skipping your own breakfast in the rush to get the kids sorted in the
morning and off to school quick smart.
Then only realising much later in the day when your tummy growls its
disgust at you for denying it!!! Or
perhaps you just grab something on the way out the door! But some of those convenience grab and go
“breakfast” items have little nutritional content and are instead full of sugar
It’s time to squeeze in a proper
breakfast and fortunately Cheerio’s Oat
Crisp® turned out to be very tasty AND good for me. Well worth squeezing into your schedule
regardless of how manic your mornings are.
The combination of crunchy oat flakes and crisp cheerios are very
moreish whether you go for the original Oat Crisp or the Cinnamon version.

I do prefer the Cinnamon Oat Crisp
overall as it placated by sweet tooth whilst reassuring me with knowledge that
it was helping reduce cholesterol for a healthier heart! Anyone who knows me will realise that’s very
important as I do have a habit of eating ALL the wrong kind of food, if I could
live on cake alone I probably would… but I am starting to put more thought into
the choices I make when it comes to mealtimes.
To complete your
nutritious breakfast you should have a glass of water and a piece of fresh
fruit to accompany your cereal (with semi-skimmed milk!). I generally remember to have the glass of
water because I read somewhere about it kick-starting your metabolism in the
morning so I felt it was a step in the right direction. But now I know how much better a cereal like
Cheerios Oat Crisp is for me I will definitely incorporate it into my breakfast
routine, I will just have to move a bit quicker in the mornings! My only problem is that the boys also love
this cereal too, so we will be fighting over the box!!!
