Berry-tasty gluten-free muesli 

Start Father’s Day off, the tasty way with our gluten-free muesli. This Father’s Day breakfast idea will need to be put together the night before unless you want to wake up a little earlier in the morning!

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Once cooled, pop the muesli in a serving bowl with a good topping of fresh fruits and a dollop of low-fat yoghurt. 

Vegan Father’s Day breakfast ideas

Of course, we understand that some have dietary requirements, or follow a certain diet, which is why we wanted to ensure we put a list together of vegan birthday breakfast ideas. That will make any birthday extra special.


Vegan breakfast bars

These vegan bars are full of yummy berry flavours. They are a great way to sweeten up your Father’s Day. You just need orange or apple juice, jumbo rolled oats, crumbled SHREDDED WHEAT Original® biscuit, hazelnuts & almonds, dried apricots, raisins, and some sunflower seeds.

Why should Nestlé Cereals be used as an ingredient?

Nestlé Cereals have been on a journey for the past 18 years to make sure that all our ingredients make breakfast better. That means, we have worked on increasing whole grain and fibre, whilst making sure to reduce sugar and salt content.
All Nestlé cereals which carry a Green banner have whole grain as the number one ingredient. Many of our breakfast cereals are also fortified with 5 vitamins and 2 minerals, including riboflavin, niacin, B6, and folic acid. 

Creating new and tasty flavours with your favourite breakfast cereal by using different toppings and fruit, or using them in tasty breakfast recipes is a great way to add an extra layer of flavour to any breakfast.

Breakfast is always a fun way to get your Father’s Day off to a joyful start, which is why we wanted to give you the ultimate breakfast ideas for Father’s Day to make the day that extra bit special! What better way to say ‘Happy Father’s Day’ than with some of our delicious breakfast recipe ideas, that all incorporate our flavoursome cereals? We can’t think of a better way to do that!
