Shaken and stirred – it’s Crunchtastic

Cereals are very popular for breakfast in our home as I find them a quick and nutritious way of starting  the day. Especially during the week, breakfast is always quite a hurried affair.

The children love cereal and always seem to want different ones. I don’t normally give in but sometimes to make life easier for myself, I do keep a variety. Nestlé provided me with a wonderful opportunity to keep the kids happy while giving them the same cereal. 🙂


As it is National Breakfast week, I was asked to enter a challenge  to come up with cereal mix to kick start our mornings and we came up with this.  It’s a mix of Cheerios, cookie crisp and shreddies and we’ve called it



To make sure that the kids also have some of their 5-a day, I added finely sliced bananas, apples and chopped pecan nuts.

It went down a treat.


Of course, before we actually came to an agreement on the best mix, we went through A LOT of combinations so you can be sure that this one is tried and tested. We also, as you can imagine, ate a lot of cereal that day. 😉

Disclaimer : We were sent some cereals to help us with the challenge. All ideas and opinions are my own.
