Many people are under the impression that their breakfast cereal is healthier than a snack or a chocolate bar. I know people who will have a ‘healthy treat’ by pouring themselves a bowl of their favorite cereal instead of raiding the cupboard.
Whether this is really healthier of course depends on the type of cereal you go for. But whatever the case, the likelihood is that the cereal will not be as healthy as you think it is. Essentially, most cereals boil down to carbs (grains or biscuits) with more carbs packed on top (fruit, chocolate, sugar).
If you want to go as healthy as possible, then choose porridge oats for your way to start the day. These aren’t perfect still, but the release of sugar is at least very slow.
