It's supposed to be the most important meal,set you up for the day and kick start your metabolism... but what are the best breakfasts on the market? These are the top five things I reach for to aid morning hunger pangs...

Belvita Breakfast Biscuits, £2.19
Most supermakets

I'd heard a few adverts for Belvita breakfast biscuits, so I bought a box of the fruit & fibre ones. They don't look tasty, but they are delicious - a bit like McVittie's Fruit Shortcakes. They contain whole grain and a selection vitamins and minerals... but they taste far too nice to be good for you in my opinion! The problem I have is I eat all four biscuits (they come in sachets of four) for breakfast, and then I tend to eat another pack in the evening after dinner as a snack (fattie). 
White's Apple & Cinnamon Crunch, £2.45 
I would seriously consider doing a Waitrose shop just for this joyous breakfast treat. It is heavenly. I could happily eat nothing but this for a very long time... and I tire easily! Try it, you will love it - delicious light granola with little flakes of apple and a hint of cinnamon. They don't sell it everywhere, but they should!!

Mmmm chocolate croissants
Chocolate croissants - not Pain au Chocolat (although I do like these too!) are a fabulous morning meal. My personal favorite is the Tesco one, but I more regularly buy the Pret ones, as I work in London, and you can't move anywhere without passing one! Warm rich chocolate goodness encased in delicious pastry. Yum. 

Rumblers Oat Clusters and Yogurt (Raspberry), £1
Various stores
I blame eating on-the-run for my indulgent chocolate snacks, when I could just as easily eat grab something that's healthy. Rumblers Oat Clusters with Raspberries and Yogurt are delicious and available at most shops (and almost all branches of Boots). The convenient tubs contain low fat probiotic yogurt, into which you can pour the nutritious wholegrain oats with little dried raspberries. It even comes with a spoon.  Perfection in a little plastic bowl. 
Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Clusters Milk Chocolate Curls, £2.97  
I am a Kellogg's Crunchy Nutter. I go particularly nuts for the Milk Chocolate Curls variant. It combines tasty clusters of oats, wheat and corn, wrapped in honey and nuts with milk chocolate. It is somewhat of a dessert, but who cares!?

What's your favourite brekkie?
