Label-reading tips

*These cereals contain dried fruit. While dried fruit naturally adds sugar, it’s a good idea to check the ingredients list to see what other sugars have been added.

We have used the serve sizes suggested by the manufacturer. These range from 1/3 cup for the denser mueslis to 1 cup for the lighter cereals.

Tip: Instead of sprinkling sugar on your cereal, slice a banana or add berries for sweetness and extra nutrients.
