The All Bran 5 Day Challenge!

Im not a cereal girl, give me a slice of toast on the run and a mug of coffee and im all set to go!  We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day and since having Amelia I have felt the need to change my lifestyle and diet.  This challenge couldnt have come at a better time!

We were sent 3 boxes of All Bran to eat for 5 days and document how we felt about our tummy during and after this challenge.  To be honest, Ive always thought of All Bran as something my dad ate 'to keep him regular' so not a cereal ive gravitated towards at the supermarket.  

HOWEVER!  After 5 days of trying these new cereals I am excited to say that I am a true convert! 

The Chocolate Wheats were a firm favourite with all of the children as it genuinely did taste like chocolate - not that synthetic powdery taste you get with some cereals either!  

The Red Berry was my favourite and filled me up until lunch, no snacking - not only did I not feel hungry but it put food completely out of my mind - I didnt even realise until around 1pm that I was wanting to eat something!  (There arent many foods that make me do that!) lol  And for that I will eternally love Kelloggs All Bran! haha

What I loved about the cereal too is that it doesnt necessarily look like cereal either - no flakes or rabbit pellet type chunks, this was the kind of crunch you could add to natural yogurt and have as a dessert.  We have worked out way through all 3 boxes and have now added this to our regular weekly shop - knowing that I now feel less bloated and that we are all having something healthy and something that we all enjoy for breakfast is one less thing for me to stress about!

Do you know someone who can benefit from a little help in the tummy department??

Here is a quote from Kelloggs -  Did you know that 90 to 95 per cent of the ‘happy’ hormone serotonin is made in the gut? A study of 1,000 UK women found 52 per cent experience digestive complaints, such as bloating or gas, at least once a week. Eating fibre everyday is a simple remedy for happy tums!

Go tell them to try the All Bran 5 Day Challenge and let me know how they get on! 


I was sent 3 boxes of cereal to take part in this challenge.  This does not affect my opinions and all comments are my own, I was not paid for this post.
