Working to Make Breakfast Better
And it’s because of you. You said more whole grain, less sugar, and use natural ingredients. So we've listened and worked hard to improve, including making whole grain our main ingredient across the Nestlé Breakfast Cereals Portfolio. Your voice is leading the way to make breakfast better every day. Find out more below.
We’ve Made Whole Grain Our Number One Ingredient
We’re working to get the most out of the natural grain. It’s a little thing that makes a big difference.
Look for the green banner on each pack of Nestlé Cereals to help you and your family get whole grain.
A whole lot of grains
One bushel of wheat contains around a million individual whole grain kernels.
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’.

We've tried to answer as many of your questions as possible. You can search them all here:
Do Nestlé products in emerging countries have more salt than products in developed/developing countries?
For the last 15 years we’ve been working to reduce the sodium (which is the major component of salt) in our breakfast cereals across the world, because we are committed to continuously improve the nutritional profile of our cereals. . Achieving consistency in all products, in all countries, takes time - so some may have more sodium than others. Our aim is for all our cereals – globally – to have the same reduced levels of sodium, with a target of less than 135mg per serving in all our children's products.

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 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 check mark on top of the box.
