The benefits of Nestlé Cereal ingredients 

There are many ways to include Nestlé cereals as part of your morning breakfast. Between 2010 and 2020, we have been on a journey to make sure our cereal products and recipes make breakfast even better. That means, we have been working on increasing whole grain and fibre, whilst making sure to reduce their sugar and salt content.
All of our Nestlé cereals which carry a Green banner have whole grain as the number one ingredient. Many Nestlé breakfast cereals are fortified with vitamins and minerals, too. Find out more about fortified cereals. Combining your favourite breakfast cereal with different toppings and fruit, or using them in recipes is a great way to add some excitement to your breakfast.
