Finding the right cereal

FOUR THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN A BREAKFAST CEREAL

Aim for an HSR of 4 or more

Check the front of the breakfast cereal’s package for the Health Star Rating (HSR). The higher the number, the healthier the cereal. Learn more about HSR system here.

Find out how much fibre it has

Fibre keeps your digestive system healthy and helps you stay regular, so choose a cereal with at least 2g per serve. Find out more about fibre here.

Go for whole grains

Check the ingredients list for the word “whole” before any grain, like “whole meal”, “whole wheat”, “whole oats” etc. Ingredients are listed in order, so the closer a whole grain is to the start, the more there is. Get more info about whole grains here.

Keep an eye on salt content

Have a look at the nutrition information panel on the package and see how much salt (sodium) is in the breakfast cereal. Aim for cereals with no more than 400mg of sodium per 100g.
