    If you can handle All Bran you get 42g. There are a few others you can have 42g of, I dont know which without going through the entire list. Otherwise it's 1 syn per 20 calories yes. The same rule applies to your milk, you count that as HEXes or 1 syn per 20 calories.

    How much does your full bowl weigh? I know 28g isnt much (which is one of the reasons I dont eat cereal myself) but you still have to count it, whether its as HEXes or syns. Bigger bowl just means more syns :(

    Do you go in the pregnancy & breastfeeding room? Theyre probably best able to help you on HEXes, morning food etc. You do get more HEXes depending on what stage you're at but I dont know the details.

    Like I say I dont eat cereal as I feel its a waste of milk and HEXBs. I have toast and coffee for breakfast (1HEXA & 1HEXB) and usually eat Green so I still have 2 more HEXes left for the rest of the day. Lots of people eat fruit & yoghurt for breakfast but that doesnt fill me up at all, I have that *as well as* my toast & coffee usually :rolleyes:
