      Advantages

      • nutritious
      • "great taste"
      • convenient

      Disadvantages

      A convenient and healthy breakfast bar which is great for eating on the go.

      I bought Belvita Crunchy Oat Breakfast Biscuits as a back up plan if we ever ran out of cereal. My daughters often skip breakfast which isn't ideal before going to school. They both tried these nutritious biscuits and loved them. The great thing is that they can be eaten on the go which saves time in the mornings. They taste delicious, crunchy and once eaten a few, it actually feels like you have had a breakfast.

      The biscuits contain cereal and have added minerals and vitamins which means that they are packed full of goodness to start your day off the right way. The biscuits release carbohydrates over a period of four hours which keep hunger at bay and help keep you going until lunch time. There are 24 biscuits in each box, consisting of 6 separate pack containing four biscuits in each.

      They are handy to pop into your bag and having them as a healthy snack between meals. They are not too sweet and delicious with a glass of milk. There is a whole range of flavours on the market and I am looking forward to trying some others soon.

      My husband pops a pack in his pocket when he is out bird watching and this keeps him going until he gets back home for dinner. Younger children love them too and would be good in their lunchbox as a healthier option to ordinary biscuits.

      Handy for people with busy lifestyles. I would definitely recommend having a box or two of these in your cupboard as an alternative to cereals.

      Great quick and easy breakfast snack

      For a few months during my daughters third year, I was having a lot of trouble getting her to eat anything at breakfast time. I tried her with everything from coco-pops to shreddies, to weetabix etc, and she would just have a spoonful and that would be it, I even tried her on toast and crumpets, breakfast time was a real chore in our house. She had just started nursery when she turned three and I wanted her to eat something in the morning, otherwise she wouldn't be getting anything until about lunchtime. I know how much all kids like biscuits, so when I saw these on offer, I thought I would give them a go.

      == What is it? ==

      Belvita Breakfast comes in a box containing 6 packets of 4 biscuits. There are a few different flavours on the market and I thought I would play it safe by getting the crunchy oats flavoured ones. According to all the information on the packaging, these biscuits are rich in cereals, made with wholegrain, no colours or preservatives, source of fibre and vitamins B1, E, and Magnesium. According to studies as part of a balanced breakfast the carbohydrates in these biscuits are released over 4 hours, so they keep you going all morning. The biscuits remind me of malted milk biscuits there is a leafy wheat looking design on the front of them and they have a nice crispy crunch to them.

      == Price ==

      I purchased these on offer in my local Morrisons for £1.50 and they normal retail at around £2.60 a box. You can buy these at most supermarkets and usually one of them has an offer on them, so it pays to shop around. I only usually buy them on offer, as I think £2.50 is a bit expensive for a box of biscuits.

      == Verdict ==

      My daughter loves these, even though that now she is eating normal cereal more often, these are always handy to have in the cupboard, just in case. We usually go to visit Lily's mum on a Wednesday and these are a handy treat for eating on the bus journey, I would rather give her a packet of these than a packet of crisps on the bus. When I first bought her these biscuits I used to make Lily a cup of tea in the morning and she would dunk her biscuits in, now that I don't drink tea, she just has a glass of milk with them. These biscuits are great for kids and adults alike, and sometimes I have a couple of these before my morning run on the mornings Lily is at her mums, then I have a proper full breakfast when I get back. I would give these 5 stars just for the sheer convenience of them.
