We thought this would be a good time to introduce ourselves. We’re Nestlé Breakfast Cereals and we make some of the world’s favorite breakfast cereals. Every morning we wake up with a simple mission in mind: to make breakfast better for everyone, everywhere, every day.
We believe in breakfast
Did you know studies show people who eat cereal for breakfast lead a healthier lifestyle?
We believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so we’re always working to make cereal your best option. We make it easy to get good nutrition in every delicious bowl.
Chewing It Over
People have been eating whole grains for more than 17,000 years – they picked seeds, rubbed off the husks and chewed the kernels raw or boiled them in water.
Egyptians used to bury mummies with necklaces made from barley, and in 1324 King Edward II of England set the standard for the measurement - making the ‘inch’ equal to ‘three grains of barley, dry and round, placed end-to-end lengthwise’.
Real food, simply made
What goes into your family’s food is important to you, so we take our recipes seriously. It’s a simple journey from field to bowl. And that journey begins with whole grain, the main ingredient in most of our recipes. We carefully select and source our ingredients and use a simple process to make our cereals tasty and nutritious.
There are over 4,000 of us in more than 130 countries around the world, working together every day to find new ways to make our cereals even better for you. Our ‘family’ is committed to giving your family a nutritious start to the day; giving you more whole grain, working to reduce sugar and salt, and offering you more great cereals to choose from.
We’re here to make your breakfast better.

We've tried to answer as many of your questions as possible. You can search them all here:
How can I find foods made with whole grain?
Two things to remember: • Look for food labels where the word 'whole' appears in front of the name of the grain, like “whole wheat” or “wholemeal bread”. • For foods with more than one ingredient, make sure whole grain is listed towards the top of the ingredients list. The further up the list it is, the more whole grain has been used in the recipe. And look out for the percentage of whole grain. You should find this in the ingredients list too. It’s easy to know if a Nestlé breakfast cereal is made with whole grain: just look out for the Green Banner and whole grain tick on top of the box.
Which Nestlé cereals are made with whole grain?
All Nestlé breakfast cereals carrying the green banner are made with whole grain; this is our Whole Grain Guarantee. They are made with at least 8g or more of whole grain per 30g serving. There are ingredient lists on all packs, showing the exact amount. By end of 2015, we’re committed to making whole grain the main ingredient in all Nestlé cereals popular with children.
What should be in a complete breakfast?
A complete breakfast should include a balance of nutrients from each of the major food groups. As a guide, it might look like this: • 1 grain-based starchy food • 1 dairy food • 1 portion of fresh fruit • 1 glass of water • Optionally, an additional source of protein Nestlé breakfast cereals are a nutritious breakfast choice as they are: • A source of fiber and whole grain • Low in fat (most have low levels of all types of fat, including saturates) • Fortified with vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins, calcium and iron • A lower calorie per kilojoule, fat and sugar choice than many other breakfast food options
