Made from whole wheat, Weetabix are high in fibre and low in fat, sugar and salt. Plus, when eaten with milk, they have a low Glycaemic Index (GI) level, providing slow release energy throughout the morning.
But with many more Weetabix varieties to choose from these days, are all Weetabix breakfast cereals still healthy?
There are many ways of eating your Weetabix, but no doubt the most common way is simply by adding hot or cold milk and maybe topped with fruit.
Some of the newer varieties have added ingredients such as strawberries and fruit or nuts, making them a little more flavoursome and sweeter, but inevitably higher in sugar.
To help you see the individual nutrition in the Weetabix varieties currently on sale in UK stores, I've compiled the following tables including calories, nutrition and ingredients and a traffic light symbol for each variety.
By looking at the traffic light, you can see whether the fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt levels are within healthy levels. This can be useful if you have particular health concerns, such as whether you're on a low salt diet, cutting down on fat or sugar, or looking for the lowest calorie cereal.
All calories are shown for the dry products. For 125ml of whole milk add an extra 80 calories, for semi skimmed milk add 60 calories, for 1% fat milk add 54 calories and for skimmed (fat free) milk add 42 calories.
