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 bloggers to try the new All-Bran cereals for five consecutive day's to see what we thought, 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 wheats.  

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. I actually felt full after my cereal too. 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, I have been feeling bloated and just rather rubbish. 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 so sluggish.

Since trying these cereals out, we as a family are now definitely All Bran fans. 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. I am pleased my daughter loves it too as it is much healthier for her than her normal chocolate covered cereals.

I can safely say that these cereals pass the taste test in our house and I do feel better for swapping my usual; toast for All Bran. 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 every day is a simple remedy for happy tums. So if your one of the 52% of people experiencing digestive complaints or you're 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.
