How are you enjoying World Cereal Day?

Time and time again we have been told breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, this World Cereal Day we’re making sure to jump-start our day with cereal that’s not only yummy but has health benefits too.

‘Cereal options such as muesli are great because they are high in energy which helps fuel the body at the start of the day,’ says Kershnee Kallee, Marketing Manager at Jungle.

‘Muesli is also high in fibre (aiding digestion) and low in sodium (helps reduce the risk of high blood pressure). For those starting their mornings with an early workout, replenishing your body with cereals high in protein is a good choice as this helps with muscle growth and maintenance. Oats is also a great cereal option – not only because it’s perfect for the whole family, but because it contains beta-glucan, a soluble dietary fibre that lowers cholesterol to keep your heart well.’

‘Play around with healthier cereal options, adding things like honey, fruits, nuts and yoghurt to make them even more delicious. Whether you decide to bake with porridge or nibble on muesli as a snack, cereal should be seen as more than just a plain breakfast option.

Kershnee’s favourite cereal recipes:

The Wednesday Breakfast Bowl

You’ll need: ½ cup Jungle Plus; 1 cup plain yoghurt; ½ cup milk; 1 chopped banana; ½ cup raspberries

How to: Blend Jungle Plus, yoghurt and milk until smooth. Add chopped banana and raspberries. Add honey to taste and enjoy.

Easy Blueberry Chia Overnight Oats

You’ll need: ½ cup Jungle Oats; 2 tablespoon chia seeds; 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup; 1 packet stevia/ sweetener of choice; ½ cup blueberries; 3/4 cup low-fat milk

How to: Mix the sweetener and milk until the sweetener has dissolved. Layer your ingredients (½ cup Jungle Oats, ½ cup blueberries and 2 tablespoon chia seeds) in the Mason jar (or sealed bowl).
