Delicious Cereals All Brits Love

Brits love breakfast, whether it is a slice of toast or a classic bowl of cereal many people say that breakfast is their favourite meal of the day. Of course, breakfast is also considered to be the most important meal of the day so it definitely isn’t one that you should skip. 

Although it is traditionally eaten in the morning, cereal is often reached for in the evening as a snack too. This may sound strange but, once you have found your favourite then you won’t be able to get enough. If you’re unsure where to start when it comes to British cereals, the team at British Essentials have put together a list of classics that you simply must try. 

The porridge option 

For many, porridge is the go-to option in the morning and it is probably one of the best you can choose too. This bowl of oats is high in the fibre, which has numerous benefits, and it also helps reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels, it promotes healthy gut bacteria and increases feelings of fullness. What more could you want from your breakfast?

When it comes to porridge many Brits would say that there is no other choice than Quaker Oats. Not only do they provide you with a traditional plain porridge but they are also famous for their other flavours, especially their golden syrup option. 


The chocolate option 

Mixing chocolate with cereal is a great option, especially for children. Sometimes one of the only ways you can get them to eat breakfast is with a chocolatey cereal in the cupboard. Of course, you want to pick your cereal wisely and check the sugar content, but with such a huge selection to choose from, there is something for everyone. 

There is no denying that chocolate cereals have taken over our breakfast isles, but many would say that the real winner in this category is Kellogg's Coco Pops. After all, any cereal that turns your milk into chocolate milk can’t be beaten. 


The healthy option 

Of course, many people would prefer a healthier breakfast and whether it's puffed, baked or flaked, cereal can still form part of a healthy, balanced diet. Many of these people will turn to muesli or granola when they are conscious of their breakfast choice. Thankfully, British supermarkets have lots of tasty yet healthy options.

One of the most popular granolas has to be Jordans. Their expanding range brings a variety of berries and nuts to their granola and muesli cereals. Whether you choose a super berry granola or a nut and seed muesli you are definitely making a healthier choice. 

The sweet option 

If you have a sweet tooth then there are definitely plenty of cereals for you to choose from. You don’t have to turn to pancakes or muffins to please your pallet. You can even avoid chocolate with the vast range of sweet cereals that you will find in British supermarkets, it is so easy to get your sweet kick. 

Try something a little bit different but still get your sweet kick by choosing Nestle Curiously Cinnamon Grahams. These crunchy whole-grain squares are packed with a delicious cinnamon taste and are favoured by many. 


The classic British option 

When it comes to Brits and cereal there is one box that you can guarantee has been in every household at least once. It is a real classic and they are known nationwide. They are also ideal from a healthy eating point of view as this cereal is low in fat, high in fibre and low in sugar however, they still taste delicious. 

Weetabix has been an icon of British breakfast tables since 1932. For many Brits, nothing beats the classic Weetabix and the debate of what to pair them with is never-ending. Whether you choose milk, butter or jam, Weetabix is a breakfast winner.
