10 best breakfast cereals

1. Beggar's Mantle Muesli
Muesli doesn't come much more luxurious than this one from Fife-based bakers, Your Piece Baking. It's jammed with juicy fruit and all the oats used come from farms close to the bakery. £4.00, yourpiecebakingcompany.com
2. Alara Date with Cocoa Organic Muesli
Vegan food is tasteless, right? Wrong - this cocoa and fruit muesli from Alara, which is packed with antioxidant-rich dates and has no added salt or sugar, is full of flavour. £4.99, alara.co.uk
3. Lizi's Granola
Lizi's jumbo oat, coconut and pecan granola won a gold star at the Great Taste Awards. And a single bowlful accounts for nearly a quarter of your recommended daily intake of vitamin E, zinc and selenium £3.50, goodnessdirect.co.uk
4. Sharpham Park Honey Puffs
Start the day the healthy way with these spelt puffs from Sharpham Park, which are low GI and high in both iron and riboflavin. A great alternative to traditional wheat-based cereals. £2.95, sharphampark.com
5. Food Doctor Papaya Passion Muesli
Wholesome is the best word to describe this mixture of rolled oats, rye flakes and dried fruit. Add low-fat yoghurt and fresh fruit for an early-morning feast. £2.99, thefooddoctor.com
6. Optivita Berry Oat Crisp
If you have high cholesterol, you will want to take a look at this Heart-UK-approved cereal which is chock-a-block with oatbran, which helps keep artery-clogging cholesterol at bay. £2.50, ASDA.com
7. Gorilla Munch
This cereal is easy on the conscience and the digestion - because, as well as being gluten-free, one per cent of the price goes to wildlife charities around the world. £1.79, wholefoodsmarket.com
8. Biona Wild Berry Crisp Granola
It's all about the crunch with Biona's chunky-cluster granola, roasted to perfection, covered in honey and then mixed with what seems like a field's worth of freeze-dried strawberries. £3.56, naturallygoodfood.co.uk
9. Jordans Super Nutty Granola
When they say super nutty, they really mean it - this granola is brimming with hazelnuts, almonds and brazils. Be warned though, all those nuts make it quite fatty, so it's best kept as a weekend treat. £3, waitrose.com
10. Infinity Foods Cranberry and Pecan Muesli
It might not have the jazziest packaging in the world, but this Great-Taste-Award-winner wins hands down in the deliciousness stakes, with its mixture of smooth dried fruit and crunchy pecan nuts. £2.58, greenlife.co.uk
