When you first wake up in the morning, your body’s running on empty. As you slept, it was busily using nutrients to repair damaged tissue, fuel growth and keep your biological processes running. So once you awake you need to break your body’s fast. Eating breakfast kickstarts your metabolism and helps replenish your body’s nutritional reserves, so it’ll have enough energy to get you through the day.
To get your day started right, you need a mix of nutrients – carbohydrates, protein, fats and fibre, plus vitamins and minerals. It sounds like a lot, but it’s surprisingly easy to get the balance right. Just have something from each of these groups, and you’ll get everything you need.
Every cereal is a different size and shape, so the amount that makes up a serve varies. This chart gives you a guide, but you may find you need more than one serve depending on your energy needs.

The UNCLE TOBYS name and logo has significant historical significance, it was designed by Nellie Love, the niece of Clifford Love – the founder of UNCLE TOBYS, who was a keen artist and a student of literature. She suggested the name and designed the logo based on the great literacy character in the “Life of Times of Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Sterne, first published in 1759. In the book Uncle Toby is a gentle, uncomplicated lover of his fellow man. The original design of Uncle Toby standing with the Widow Wadman has seen little changes over the years, so has become a treasured representation of the UNCLE TOBYS heritage.
