To think that 125ml milk is way too much for 30g of cereal?

Was she in Scotland pinkr? There was a girl at my halls that did that!

I knew a woman once who hated milk and so used orange juice in her cornflakes sad

Honey bee balls grin

How many male honey bees are needed to make one box?

I eat my cereal dry with half a pint of skimmed milk in a glass. Has to be skimmed. Would rather have water than any other type.

yep, your problem is not too much milk but too little cereal. I make myself a massive portion then when the cereal is finished and there is still milk left I go get more cereal.

[I just don't understand why I'm fat confused ]

And special K doesn't have less calories than other cereal. I don't know why people eat it.

Measured my normal (average size?) bowl of cereal once out of interest when calorie counting. It was over twice the 30g that the box called a portion and had far more than 125ml of milk.

On the plus side I was able to offset a lot of the calories by recalculating using skimmed instead of semi.

Does anyone actually measure their cereal?

I just open the bag and pour dds cereal until i can b bothered stopping.

I am a drowner. I love drowning my wheetabix in milk. Its the only time i have milk as it tastes horrible drinking it from a glass.

In the interests of research grin

@ 75-80g of crunchy nut cereal + 330ml milk blushshock

I cannot believe that anyone could have 30g of regular cereal and be sustained until lunchtime on just that.

If there is milk left I add more cereal.

I also tend to mix cereal like I just had crunchy nut with honey bee balls smile

I'm a drowner! Can use at least half a pint - cereal flavoured milk is the best grin

that's way too much, I take 35g of fruit and fibre with a 35mm film canister of almond milk as I take my breakfast to work and its the perfect size grin

What thebody said!
I never have milk on cereal, DS likes porridge you could comfortably eat with your fingers if you chose to, OH is average and DD likes to drown hers.
They just slosh it on until it looks right for them.

It depends on the cereal. Shudder at the thought of dry weetabix sad
Agree that 30g is much too small though! It wouldn't fill me up and I'm not a big eater.

Twunk Mon 15-Jul-13 23:00:41

I like a mere splash of milk with my cereal - I would say 20ml at most. Cereal needs to be crunchy IMO.

thebody Mon 15-Jul-13 22:58:43

are you measuring it out?? if so stop now and seek a life😃😃

StuntGirl Mon 15-Jul-13 22:58:29

I agree! I bought porridge for the first time a few weeks ago and made it up according to their instructions. 50g of porridge per person, are they mad?! I make just less than half of it and use about a quarter of the milk they suggest.

Similarly I bought a big bag of Maltesers recently which states a portion is 37g, and all their nutritional information is given based on that. Except there is no way, bar weighing it out beforehand, of knowing how much 37g is from a large bag. Also 37g does not divide between 85g, or 135g or 250g so why bother with the portions for larger bags? Annoying!

kim147 Mon 15-Jul-13 22:57:28

I also don't think 30g is a serving. Unless you don't eat much.
