I used to avoid breakfasts simply because I didn't have time for it, when I got pregnant I decided that it would be a great to introduce a healthy breakfast into my life. Since then I used to have oat porridge every single day up until I gave birth. When L was born I didn't have enough time to cook porridge ( I have never considered porridge out of a packet as I try to avoid added sugar), so now I would share banana and crumpets with L. I do like cereals but I can finish the whole box in 1 day.
When Keep Me Going offered me to review their cereal box I was very excited to try wholegrain breakfast cereals and see if I can refrain from eating the whole pack in one go.
"We all know that breakfast is meant to be the most important meal of the day, since it provides the energy needed to keep you going until lunchtime, without the need for snacks.
Wholegrain breakfast cereals provide an excellent start, but too many contain high levels of sugar, salt and fat. We've managed to cut these right down, but when you try “Keep Me Going...” ™, you'll probably be surprised at how good it tastes".
If you are trying to cut down on sugars and salts these cereals could be just right for you!
Keep Me Going cereals contain "whole grain barley & whole grain oat flour (81%), sugar, rye malt, magnesium, salt, vitamin mix, (vitamins C, E, B6, B12, thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin, folic acid, biothin, pantothenic acid)".
I must admit I didn't follow portion instructions as a breastfeeding mother I would need more food than a normal human being, so I served myself a generous portion of cereals. I liked the crunchiness and taste straight away it reminded me of the rye bread I used to eat with butter back in Russia, yummy! My husband though disliked the taste and opted not to test it, he said it tastes strange and not tasty at all.
One pack of cereals (375g) lasted me 2-3 days, which means that potentially it could be quite pricey- a pack of keep me going in Ocado online store is £2.65. But if you ration food wiser than me and generally eat smaller portions a pack would last you a week, which isn't too bad.
If you have a little one interested in trading cards,s/he will be pleasantly surprised to find a pack of 3 free trading cards full of interesting facts about different countries.
