    Breakfast Cereal Serving Sizes - How Much Should I Put on a Plate?

    Serving the right amount can be a tricky affair. Find out more about recommended servings based on age and chip type - and how you can enjoy it

    This is definitely enough...!

    The time in the morning is very limited and it is not allowed to measure the amount of breakfast cereals! But don't worry - use a teaspoon or a cup, which are two easy ways to get the recommended amount on everyone's breakfast plate. It's simple!

    An elegant cup of breakfast cereal!

    Use an empty cup to measure the amount you need. First, count how many teaspoons of cereal can fill the cup, by filling the cup one by one. Now that you know that if you want a 5 tablespoon serving and your cup holds 10 tablespoons, then you'll need to fill a half cup. Simple - no scale required!

    Wheat is a source of strength!

    Wheat is a source of strength! Wheat is the most widely cultivated type of grain. It is grown on more than 17 percent of the world's total cultivated land and is the staple food for about 35 percent of the world's population. It provides more calories and protein in diets around the world than any other crop.

    Lots of whole grains

    One bushel of wheat contains about a million whole grain kernels.

    Helping children calibrate the right amount

    It can be hard for little ones to determine the amount of breakfast cereals – the package is big, their hands are small, and they can act out of control! But there are things you can do to make things easier:

    Milk first!

    Help your children develop a new habit of pouring milk first. This will make it difficult to overfill the plate. Stay close and keep an eye on them to make sure the situation doesn't get out of hand.


    Make counting spoonfuls of breakfast chips a game!

    Optical illusion!

    Size can be deceiving - the amount of beans themselves can seem small on a large plate, or large on a small plate. Give your child a plate that appears full when the correct amount of cereal is in it.

    Now you can serve your family the right amount of breakfast cereals every morning. It's simple!

      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.
