Weetabix the wholegrain cereal
Available from most good shops and supermarkets
Cereal biscuits which come in various different sized boxes according to your needs and the size of your family. I usually buy the huge family value box of 72 Weetabix as I find they last a lot longer and are more economical than the smaller boxes. The box of 72 costs around £4.80 but if you usually only have a bowl with two in it, this is effectively 36 breakfasts or snacks.
I love Weetabix and always have done ever since I have been a young child. There are several different ways to enjoy them. I eat them not only for breakfast but as a snack throughout the day too. Sometimes I have them with cold skimmed milk and some sweetener on the top as they are very low in fat and filling too which is great for dieters.
I love how its easy just to throw 2 biscuits in a bowl and there is no annoying measuring to check the calories in the cereal each time. I also sometimes eat them heated up in the microwave with warm milk and this is my favourite way to eat them as they are so warming and moreish this way that I usually end up having four weetabix when heating them up as it tastes like a lovely satisfying bowl of comfort food to me.
They can also be eaten with some fruit or yoghurt poured on top, I myself love having them the odd time with a sliced banana on top as it is healthy, really filling and delicious. Its also wholegrain which means that I know its not going to give me a sugar buzz and then leave me feeling tired later in the day. It releases evergy gradually to keep your blood sugar levels up. I also find sometimes if I am really tired and have had a long day that they are brilliant to eat without having to spend ages standing in the kitchen cooking something which is really something I dont want to do wnen I have been rushing around all day.
I have also been trying to eat more Weetabix since I have been pregnant as they are a good source of folic acid which is great for the baby and I find a bowl of these makes me less likely to pick at something unhealthy later in tme morning as they fill me up and leave me feeling satisfied until lunchtime.

All in all, I think this is a brilliant way to start the day and a fantastic cereal. It is suitable for vegetarians and is really versatile as it can be eaten with so many different things, it is a great way to keep the whole family happy. Its also high in fibre and has added vitamins and irons and is delicious to boot. There are not many cereals that I love as much as this one and I am pretty sure that it will continue to be a family favourite for me.
Summary: A delicious family cereal that is good for everyone
