OUR favourite meal of the day in the O’Brien household is breakfast – and it’s not always necessarily confined to mornings.

It’s 8.30pm at night as I’m writing this, curled up on the couch with the laptop and a bowl of Pink Lady Apple and Flame Raisin cereal (RRP $4.99), courtesy of the good people at Be Natural. I could easily sum it up by saying just “scrumptious’’ as milk dribbles down my chin, but I’m guessing you want a better description.

Coming from the Apple Isle, I’m taken with not only pieces of “real’’ pink lady apples, but also granny smiths. Then throw in extra flavour from raisins, plus – the clincher for a good cereal – crunch from five wholegrain flakes, linseed, pepita and amaranth clusters and, as I said, “scrumptious’’.

Forget needing artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.

Despite being the middle of summer, the Vanilla and Almond Porridge (RRP: $4.99) that came with it isn’t going to waste either. Princess Ella loves her porridge. Offer her kiddie-treat cereal and she’ll turn her nose up to them in favour of porridge. Yes, even in this sweltering heat. For her, receiving porridge with that yummy smell (vanilla) and some little nuts (almonds) was just like Christmas.

The new range also includes Multi-Grain Porridge; Five Whole Grains cereal; and Cashew, Almond, Hazelnut and Coconut cereal.

The folks at Be Natural are giving away one box of Pink Lady Apple and Flame Raising cereal and one box of Vanilla and Almond Porridge to each of the first 10 readers who leave a comment telling us your favourite way to eat cereal?

Hmm, I’d have to say with fresh fruit and yoghurt. How about you?

    Love eating my cereal with warm milk on those cold Tassie mornings.

  2. Caz says:

    Oh I love to try something new so I’m playing 🙂 Cereal for me has always been more of an emergency tea food rather than for breakfast. (Before I had kids that is). Can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a bowl of something yummy with milk when the tea making fairy has failed to show up! Even now I’d prefer to have it for dessert than in the morning :O)

  3. Rebecca says:

    With tinned fruit and cream for dessert. Bit old fashioned.

  4. Barbara Pippos says:

    Well, we are a family of dry cereal eaters….never with milk, or anything else for that matter. That’s probably why my kids call it “crunchies” for breaky….no soggy cereal in this household!!

  5. Fiona says:

    OMG that sounds so divine!

    I’ve been sticking to soggy weetbix lately, just because that’s what everyone else my household eats, and the thought of eating a cereal that has fruit & grains & crunchy yummy bits is incredibly appealing!

    My favourite way to eat cereal?
    In peace & quiet, sitting on a deck overlooking a beach with a gentle breeze blowing through my hair and the sunshine on my skin.

    Hmmm….I think it’s time for a holiday!!

    I love to put some cereal on top of my yogurt to make it a little crunchy and to add some awesome texture to my meal. I love these cereals – super yum and what a great giveaway! Naomi x

    With cream, I love cream on cereal:)

  8. Elisha Squire says:

    My fav way to eat cereal is at night!! When the house is all quiet, and the kids are tucked up in bed, i like to tuck into a bowl of cold cereal watching my fav shoes on TV – something very “Homey” about that!!

  9. Tracy says:

    These sound so delicious! My favourite way to eat cereal is in bed, after a lovely sleep-in, made and brought in by my husband who is looking after the children whilst I eat in peace 🙂
