      I buy them so I don't feel guity about Cocopops

      Quaker's Oat Crisp are a peculiar little cereal. Looking whimsically like pillows for Polly Pocket's bed, they taste much better than you would initially think. They are an uninspiring greyish beige, but first bite reveals them to be rather delightfully crisp and, better yet, hollow. Continued chewing reveals the oaty creaminess typical of cereals from Quaker.

      Nutritionally speaking, they are high enough in protein and fibre to ameliorate even the guiltiest of maternal hearts. With just enough sugar to keep things interesting, my children eat these like cows chew grass - constantly. They were quite expensive, £2.29 per box in Morrison's, but it is a reasonably sized box.

      As one would expect of a breakfast cereal, they remain quite crunchy in milk, but after a few minutes they turn into swollen porridgy grey blobs, which even the sturdiest 3 year old won't eat. I think the answer to this is to serve them without milk, as a finger food or simply as a toddler snack.

      The most unexpected thing about this cereal is the morishness. I am sat here with an open box, munching away even as I type!

      (PS - not a recommended consumption technique )

        Discovered this delicious cereal recently at my local Waitrose and cannot recommend it highly enough. I always add a handful of All-Bran with whatever cereal I'm having and found that these two cereals go reall well together.
