Real Mums All Bran 5 day challenge

This post is an entry for the Real Mums of All-Bran Linky Challenge, sponsored by Kelloggs.

Recently I was sent these 3 All Bran cereals to try over 5 days and see if it makes any difference on how my tummy and general well being feels. 

When I opened this parcel, the first thing I got excited about was CHOCOLATE!!!! Surely Chocolate can't be good for you in a cereal? Can it? Well apparently it can, and I can confirm that it is indeed VERY yummy! I was in no way expecting a healthy cereal to taste yummy, but it did! 

As you can see from the picture above, I was also eager to try the strawberry version too. I love strawberries and this did not disappoint, it was just sweet enough and very filling. 

The Golden Crunch version was ok, I would probably not put that one on my weekly shopping list, however, that does not mean that I wouldn't eat it again. It just wasn't my favourite of the three. 

Initially I found the 5 day challenge hard, because quite frankly feeding MYSELF breakfast in the mornings is usually the last think on my mind! Making sure the children are fed, washed, dressed and Chester is ready for School is my priority! It is honestly like a comedy show in our house in the mornings! It usually consists of me saying shouting WE ARE GOING TO BE LATE or WHERE IS YOUR OTHER SHOE. The best one being 'no Millie you can not wear those shoes with that dress'! Resulting in a meltdown that means we only just make it to the School gates in time! So I am sure you can see why breakfast is not for me!

BUT I did make sure I had breakfast on 5 consecutive days, and I did enjoy it. I found that it gave me more energy than I am used to. 

Part of the campaign is about learning to love your tummy. This is something I struggle with. Yes I have had two Children, so my tummy is not going to be as nice as it was. But I just need to accept that and be happy with what I have got. I am working on it! 

I am pleased that I took on this challenge, it has given me the boost I needed, its nice to eat something that you know is good for you and enjoy it!

What do you think? Could you do the All Bran 5 day challenge?!
