Healthiest 'weetabix' type things?

I used to buy a brand with no sugar and only a small amount of sugar and no nasties but they have stopped making it.

DS has discovered weetabix but it seems too sugary and salty for daily eating.

Is there a 'healthy' version?

Why is ordinary weetabix too sugary? Most people add more sugar!

Really? I'm crap with sugar - if I have 2 I'm on the ceiling!

They are very low sugar. 2 weetabix have 1.7g of sugar and only 0.1g of salt.

I am especially sensitive on an empty stomach, which isn't great for a breakfast cereal!

porridge oats, bran flakes..all bran?

Weetabix is surely the most tasteless mush ever, is it really sugary?
The only reason I didn't give it to dd when she was a baby is because it bloody welds to everything.

I want weetybix-type things dammit! Bloody Doves Farm, bring back Biobix!

I have to admit I love a big bowl of weetabix

With ice cold milk, oh yummy.

Weetabix is mushy cardboard. I can't understand the attraction. IMO a nice bit of toast in the morning is a much better idea.

You have to get it at just the right time. Not to dry, not too wet. It's an art form.

I think Oatibix is lower in salt than Weetabix. I'm not sure how the sugar content compares, but I would've thought the sugar content of the milk was somewhat higher than that of either, so you could perhaps reduce the amount of milk you use to compensate?

Weetabix is sugary!?

Wolfiefan Thu 17-Mar-16 21:05:25

Isn't most breakfast cereal sugary?

dementedpixie Thu 17-Mar-16 21:33:45

But it isn't sugary at all. It is classed as low sugar

dementedpixie Thu 17-Mar-16 21:37:25

Oatibix has 1.5g of sugar per 2 biscuits and 0.13g salt. Pretty similar to weetabix. Neither of them are high sugar/salt

Shredded wheat is sugar free (and nicer imowink)

These days I am wolfing down five weetabix a day. Living the dream!!
