Nestle Cheerios Grab2Go Mini Bags - 95 Calories

How many of us are ‘guilty’ of dipping our hands into the cereal box when we fancy a quick snack. I know I do. But what if you fancy munching on your favourite breakfast cereal when you’re away from home?

Unless you're into carrying around a large box of cereal wherever you go, snacking on your favourite breakfast cereal out of the home isn't usually an option. Or is it?

With Nestle's new Cheerios Grab2Go bags, you can do just that. These individual snack sized bags of Cheerios are designed to be taken out of the house, packed into lunch boxes or your bag and can be eaten dry or with milk. 


If you’re concerned about calories, there’s no need. Each pack is carefully portion controlled and has just 95 calories, ideal for a snack.

Each multipack of Cheerios Grab2Go packs contains 5 x 95g individual bags ready for you to ‘Grab 2 Go’.

Cheerios Grab2Go bags may not be the most economical way to buy cereal. But there are positives to every negative. If you buy large packs of breakfast cereal, it’s easy to overestimate the portion size, and many of us do. This way we end up eating far more calories than we intended.

And when it comes to kids pouring out their own cereal, they often feel they should fill their bowl to the brim. Mine do this nearly every day (when they get their own). This results in double serving sizes and an empty cereal box in double quick time.

Cheerios also make a sweet and tasty snack eaten dry. Because they’re made with wholegrains, you’re getting the benefits of the fibre, and like most breakfast cereals, they’re fortified with vitamins and minerals.

There are quite a lot of those little O's in each pack so they take a while to eat. Make them last even longer by eating different colours individually while trying to guess which grain they are!

If you take them to work, you don't need a bowl. Just tip a packet into your coffee cup and add some milk and away you go. No excuse to miss out on breakfast.

These are quite new to stores now, but they should be widely available in major supermarkets.

  1. I must admit that I can dip into breakfast cereals as a snack and I will eat it dry. I tend to do this at home but this could be a lower fat 'crunchy' snack option compared to crisps. Good idea.
