Organic bran flakes or porage are healthy breakfasts, as long as you don't add too much sugar. I'm happy with a cup of tea to wake me up and then an English muffin and a matcha as a mid morning snack. Each to their own.

I personally eat Grape Nuts, Total, Raisin Bran and Shredded Wheat, that’s for my cold cereals, for the hot cereals, it’s Oatmeal or Cream of Wheat. Nothing but the best and you definitely can’t go wrong with that.

Cereals once known as healthy breakfast turn out to be One of the Unhealthiest Breakfast, along with Granola. 

That is absolutely not entirely true, it all depends on which cereal we are talking about. In the US you have about 100 different varieties to choose from, if you want the healthy ones or if you want the sugary ones it is your choice

2 boiled eggs

On the other hand, egg yolk is high in calories and cholesterol, but as long as it’s all in moderation

with 2 wholemeal buckwheat bread are classic rare countryside/hilly mountain region are healthy breakfast and enough until Lunch

For you, but not everyone wants to eat THAT particular combination. The good thing about the US is you rally have a large variety arsenal of food to choose from and you can research what is best for you or what you should avoid.

Yeah, but I still like my Cap'n Crunch. Just ordered some Crunchberries on Amazon.

If you have friends or family in the US or Canada, better to have them send you a "care package" with those items. Country specific items are highly overpriced on Amazon, mostly due to limited private sellers. And if you see for $0.01, run. They have fake shipping of $25 that they pocket so they can lure you into buying

I buy the store branded version of Weetabix, sheeple are just paying for the brand name when a cheaper and identical version is available which is why I'm not fussed by Kelloggs issues. In fact, I do that with most food as it's the brand name that people pay more for when the store branded version is pretty much identical and in some cases, are made by a brand name themselves but relabelled.

It's not well known, but the likes of McVities, Muller, Duracell and Andrex make cheaper store branded items of the same quality as their own. With food prices rising, people should start researching a bit to find which of their favourite brands are doing their products on the cheap.

Not necessarily. Whole grains are perfectly healthy; processed cereals rather less so. The problem of added sugar in some breakfast cereals has been known for a long time.

The second to last paragraph is complete nonsense. It is not a “particularly perilous” time for the food industry at all – revenue and profit in this sector has been at record levels and has had double digit growth. The outlook is also very strong. The CEOs and senior management of these companies have had massive pay increases over the last two years to, I guess, reflect their success. 

 

It is however a perilous time for consumers who have are fed this false narrative and suffered in the form of disproportionate price increases. Same can be said for the lower level workers also being fed this complete falsehood.

On the subject of Kelloggs, can it (or any other company) sell a breakfast product here in Japan that doesn't come loaded with sugar? The only thing I can't eat here comfortably is oatmeal.

No regular Corn Flakes?

Too bad you can't get Crispix, that and the flakes are the best.

Chicago-based Mondelez is buying Clif Bar as well.

You can buy Weetabix in Seiijo Isshi.

Yes, I've bought that a few times. I wish they were cheaper here. I once brought back to Japan a 72-pack for about 800 yen.

Rice Krispies go snap, crackle, pop. Not Frosted Flakes.
