Expert's opinions on cereal bars are normally divided and for good reason, it depends on what you're looking for. Some people believe that swapping breakfast cereal for a cereal bar will help them lose weight. Well I agree that it is likely that the average cereal bar will have fewer calories than the average bowl of cereal, but then you're likely to become hungry again quicker after a cereal bar than a bowl of cereal because you are eating less, so can you handle the cravings?

Cereal bars are a great ways to kick start your day when you're in a rush. They are easy and convenient weather you're in a rush as you're late for work or just want something to settle your stomach for a mid morning snack. They are great to have while on the go. There are many different types available for you to purchase from your local supermarket. Some of the cereal bars such as the Jordan's bars, I personally find them to hard that i can hurt your teeth and they do get very messy. Not only can you purchase the harder bars there are also soft grain bars available usually with a soft fruity filling inside. These are very satisfying with your lunch or ... Read the complete review

Cereal bars are great snacks for lunch time but they are also ideal for rushed mornings and can act as a little breakfast. There are many different cereal bars out there today, so you must find one that you like! I hope this review gives you a better idea of some cereal bars out there and helps you choose which one is best for you. My favourite cereal bars have to be the Kellogg's Nutri-Grain fruit bars. They are soft-baked bars and contain a different fruity flavour in each one. You can get ones such as Apple flavour, Blackberry & Apple, Blueberry or Strawberry. The outside is very soft and the inside is juicy. They have great flavours. The ... Read the complete review

As it has been drummed into me from a young age that breakfast is good for you and has to be eaten, I'm in the habit of it. This ususally takes the form of a bowl of cereal but when I'm in a hurry and don't have time, I sometimes opt for a cereal bar. Some of the cereal bars I've tried are: Tracker bars; these are quite delicious, sweet and gooey in my opinion. My favourite is the roasted nut one (26g, 131 kcal, about 50p) but chocolate one is okay too Nutri Grain bars - I've really gone off these as I think they're sickly sweet and the texture is too cardboard-y. Bleh. Natural bars; these bars are quite tasty, though a bit ... Read the complete review

These bars now come in so many varieties from so many different companies so there is a lot of choice. They are often sold to us as being healthy but quite often this is far from the truth and they contain an awful lot of rubbish. I use them when I am in a major rush so I can chuck it my bag or have it at work but it does not really fill you up in the same way as a bowl of porridge would. I think as well because you have not sat at a table and eaten it does not really ' feel' like breakfast. The other problem with these is that some are so expensive! Special K apple and pear bars are over £2 for 6 which I really don't find cheap when ... Read the complete review
