Hi I don't have kids but I read a lot of threads on here anyway thinking they may help if I do have kids.

Anyway this is random I just got up popped into the kitchen and realised I didn't get milk yesterday as the shop shut early. So I just ate cookie crisp dry which don't taste bad frankly. So then I scrolled through my Facebook and there's people moaning about the sugar in cereals. So my thoughts were would you rather your child have a chocolate bar or crisps which have no nutritional benefits or cookie crisp with 6 vitamins and whole grain as a snack when they want something sweet. Children's cereals have a bad rep. So I'm asking

Any responsible parent would ensure their child has a proper breakfast and a healthy balanced diet.

Chocolate & crisps or cereal filled with sugar is never really going to be a situation you'll have to worry about.

If you're not very well off, you can make porridge oats really cheaply. You wouldn't be wasting money on Cadbury bars.

Most parents would be horrified at the thought of chocolate or crisps for a breakfast, but that doesn't mean shite like cookie cereal is the only alternative. Porridge, fruit, wholemeal toast, eggs etc all a million miles better. Even cereal like weetabix and shredded wheat is better than 'kids cereal' loaded with sugar despite the 'added vitamins'.

cookie crisp with 6 vitamins and whole grain
You're not a cereal rep at all hmm rolls eyes

Usually people with kids would be more organised then to run out of milk in the first place .

There are many other choices of breakfast before "cookie crisp"

Fruit, toast, eggs? All much healthier .
