    Sadly not Gem. I love cornflakes :-(

    Not enough fibre in them to warrant them being a healthy extra.

    It's what I have mostly, so easy - no weighing and measuring, quite cheap too! I try and vary it a bit with banana, blueberries, strawberries or whatever else i have in the house. Yummy without milk and natural yoghurt on instead.

    Still can't beat cornflakes with ice cold milk..... these tend to be a treat if we ever go away anywhere!!

    I love weetabix and have it most mornings for my breakfast. It's the easiest cereal to pick as there is no weighing and is yum all scrunched up in a bowl with ice cold milk.

    Puffed wheat is a plain cereal different from rice krispies.

    I normally have fruit for breakfast. If I'm having cereal, it's either Special K sustain, or porridge.

    I love crunchy bran too! I can eat it on it's own as a nibble in the evening. Funnily enough I love all bran (has to be Kellogs tho) BUT I leave it to soak in milk overnight and it makes a wholemeal porrige which depending on my mood I have either cold, or heat it in the microwave, and have a banana or other fruit with it.

    Slimming World Extra Easy
    Hi LittleMissCupcake,

    The healthy extras list says 28g puffed wheat + 2 oat/scan bran - I tend to miss the scan brans out, but I don't know if you can replace them with anything else!

    Sorry - hope someone else might be able to help!
