To be eaten with a balanced breakfast. The biscuits provide carbohydrates, a piece of fruit provides vitamins and a yoghurt can provide calcium.
So an ideal breakfast would be four biscuits, a yoghurt and some fruit.

A 300 gram box costs £2.59 or a 600 gram box £3.99.
I bought my box of 150 grams for £1 at my local Spar garage shop.
I bought this packet of biscuits as it was on offer at my local garage.
Personally I do not wnat to have biscuits for breakfast, but to have as a snack or a little treat I find them fine.
For breakfast I would find them too sweet and not substantial or filling enough. Even the box suggests you have some fruit and a yoghurt with your four biscuits for breakfast - but give me a bowl of porridge any day!
I thought these were just Honey and Nut - and when I found some dark bits here and there in my biscuits I assumed it was a dark bit of nut. However reading the box it states that these biscuits also contains choc chips - though not in enough quantity to be noticeable by taste - but you can see a bit of them here and there - but very sparse.
To my palette I do not detect and honey really or nuts. They are quite sweet and to me taste almost identical to the Milk and Cereal ones I also bought. In fact all the ones I have tasted so far taste much of a muchness.
Also reading the ingredients shows that these have more sugar and fat than the Milk and Cereal ones too.
These biscuits come wrapped in cellophane in groups of four so they are handy to carry in your bag - but will crumble easily if squashed.
The Grocer magazine apparently suggest that Hobnobs have more fibre than these biscuits - though I must admit Belvita do add vitamins. Oddly the vitamins are shown slightly different on the box and Tesco website - but only a minor difference relating to vitamin B6.
Definitely not a healthy option in my opinion - either for myself and definitely not for children.
To my mind it would be a bad habit to get children into the mindset f having biscuits for breakfast.
