Is there a grain of truth to the health and nutrition claims made on cereal boxes?
When it comes to starting your day right and regular, you need a good source of fibre and carbohydrates, without the high dose of salt and sugar.

Our articles and advice help you make the right decision in the store, so that what ends up in your bowl actually matches the description on the box.
