Yummy in my tummy, healthier mummy #RealMumsAllBran

By | July 28, 2014

I have a confession to make, I very rarely eat breakfast. The mornings are generally a rush of lunch sorting, teeth brushing and general school preparation.

What I tend to do is either miss out completely and have a coffee shop decaf coffee instead or a bit of seeded toast mid morning. Which isn’t ideal, is it? I’m also not that keen on the taste of milk on its own so any cereal has to be extremely soaked in and my calcium requirements are usually met with afore-mentioned skimmed milk decaf coffee.

So, when BritMums and Kellogs asked for volunteers to take the #RealMumsAllBran 5 day challenge, I eagerly applied and looked forward to a) getting my act together and b) giving the cereals a try.


When the cereals arrived I was surprised by the flavours, my previous experience of All-Bran had been seeing a relative of one of many diets, it resembled twigs to me. Thankfully this was not the case with:
Golden Crunch (a slightly caramel flavour)
Red Berry Crunch (yummy and fruity)
Chocolate Wheats (just lush!).

So,how did I get on?

Well, I was extremely pleased with how much healthier I felt. I definitely felt better from the inside out after eating a bowlful, from the very first day (and that was despite being on really quite foul anti-biotics for a leg infection).

I did wonder if I would feel a bit “gassy” after having 5 days worth consecutively but there was none of that, just a happy, regular (if you get my drift) feeling.

I was surprised how tasty I found the flavours, the fruit in the Red Berry Crunch, the caramel in the Golden Crunch and the chocolate (oh, yes, indeedy) in the Chocolate Wheats all made for very pleasant bowlfuls.

My favourite was, you’ve guessed it, the Chocolate Wheat. I’ve been ordering more boxes in our online shops and made a rather tasty All Bran fruit loaf too, which was packed full of good things and tasted like a malt loaf.


In conclusion, I am a definite convert to All-Bran and regular breakfasts, but if I slip and have a bowl at 10.30am, you’ll excuse me, won’t you?

Thanks Kate and BritMums, the choc wheats were a definite hit. On our “favourites” list shopping-wise now too ūüôā
