My Real Mum All Bran Challenge

If like me you think All Bran is a bland boring cereal that only your parents eat then you will be surprised to find that actually it is not like that at all, as i have recently discovered for myself when i took part in the #RealMumsAllBranChallenge. Brit mums recently teamed up with All Bran to challenge some of there bloggers to try the new All Bran cereals for five consecutive day's to see what we thought and here is how i got on. This post is my entry for the Real Mums of All Bran challenge, sponsored by Kelloggs.

I was sent three flavours of All Bran cereal to try out golden crunch, red berry and chocolate wheat's. And to be honest i am not really a cereal lover at the moment as i am eight months pregnant i am finding myself starving in the mornings and crave carbs to fill me up so i have been eating a lot of toast and i just did not think cereal would fill me. 

I tried the red berry cereal first and i really did not think i would like it but i was really surprised to find that i did like it a lot, it was really tasty and had pieces of dried berry's in which were yummy and i actually felt full after my cereal which i was not expecting at all. In fact all three flavours are really tasty the golden crunch is really sweet and satisfying and a big hit with the other half  and the chocolate wheat's do in fact taste of chocolate and were a huge hit with my eleven year old who demolished the whole box of them in two days!

I have been eating All Bran for the last couple of weeks now for my breakfast and i have to say i feel a lot better for it, being heavily pregnant and also being on iron tablets and recently having my gallbladder removed have all played havoc on my digestive system and i have been feeling bloated and constipated and just rather rubbish and without going into to much information i am now feeling a lot better since starting the All Bran challenge the bloating has gone - well apart from my huge bump, and i no longer feel constipated and sluggish.

Since trying these cereals out we as a family are now definitely All Bran fans and i have started buying it with my weekly supermarket shop as it is yummy and healthy and i am feeling fuller, have more energy and my tummy feels happier all thanks to All Bran. And i am pleased my daughter loves it too as it is much healthier for her then normal chocolate covered children's cereals.

I can safely say that these cereals pass the taste test in are house and i do feel better for swapping my toast for All Bran and it is no surprise really as 90- 95 % of the 'happy' hormone serotonin is produced in the gut and a study of 1000 UK women found that 52% experience digestive complaints such as  bloating or gas at least once per week. Eating fibre everyday is a simple remedy for happy tums. So if your one of the 52% of people experiencing digestive complaints or your on a health kick or even if you just fancy trying out a new cereal then i can personally recommend trying out All Bran as i am sure that out of the three new flavours there will be a flavour to suit everyone.

*Disclosure: i was sent three boxes of All Bran cereal to try out for free from Brit Mums to take part in the Real mums All Bran challenge. However as always all opinions and words are my own honest account and i was not paid for this post.
