Breakfast Cereal

Breakfast cereal is a commonly used description of a food range used for consumption as the first meal of the day.

Breakfast cereals are made from any type of processed grains, sometimes fortified with vitamins. A wide variety of breakfast cereal foods can be found on the shelves of any supermarket these days. Most of breakfast cereals have added sugar or high amounts of dry fruit.
