    Well unless I have my calculations wrong (am new to PP you see), you can have 40g of cornflakes or rice krispies for 4 pp and thats quite a large amount.

    How about sugar puffs they are quite tasty, or porridge and add some fresh fruit?

    I'm shopping tomorrow and have decided to get the variety packs for variety :rolleyes: as I get bored easily. I always top my cereal with berries..........usually OSS, but really want a change so hopefully that will do it for me enough to keep me interested! :D

    rice krispies and coco pops cereal bars are 2pp each ... i like to have these ... if i need something more filling i have a tin of fruit too, juice drained.
    also no added milk needed with cereal bars ;)


    or belvita breakfast biscuits are good.
    2 for 3pp
    4 for 6pp

    5pp? Are you working that out using the NI that also says (with 125ml milk)? Make sure to measure your milk, I use about 100mls in mine (skimmed milk). And I work out special k cereals are 1pp per 10g. So I have about 4pp in my cereals generally. I find most cereal is 1pp per 10g actually lol... X

    30g of rice krispies are 3pp, I allow myself a pint of ss milk a day which is 7pp. I just keep reusing a 1 pint milk bottle and fill it up every morning, then the 7pp are already written down every day
