My #RealMumsAllBran 5 day challenge

Learning to love your tummy can be part of being a busy mum. I know that I try to make sure that I have a good breakfast each morning. If I don’t my tummy is soon telling me that it is not happy, and I find myself snacking on bad foods for the rest of the morning?

I was invited to take part in the #RealMumsAllBran 5-day challenge, and was excited to find a new breakfast cereal. All-Bran now comes in 3 tasty new flavours, chocolate wheat’s, Golden Crunch and red berry crunch. The challenge to try the new All-Bran cereals for 5 consecutive days and see if it made a difference.


The first packet that we opened of chocolate wheat’s didn’t last for 5 days as we all had a bowl, agreeing that they are very tasty and feel more like a luxury cereal than a healthy one. The boy and Dad M opened the Golden Crunch, while I enjoyed the Red Berry Crunch. Both are very tasty cereals, and by the end of day 3 I started to notice a difference.

Instead of the 11am lull that usually means a biscuit tin raid, I found that I could go all the way through to lunch without the usual tummy rumbles. The new all bran flavours were a nice change from the blander cereals I usually choose. They complimented the grapefruit which I have each breakfast, and were not at all bran like.

Learning to love my tummy as part of the #RealMumsAllBran challenge, made me think that I should start to take better care of my tummy too. I am always worrying about my boys health, and thinking about what he is eating. The lesson should start with me looking after myself. I know it’s a cliché, but thinking about the example that I set for the boy is possibly more important, so eating a good healthy breakfast is a great start.

Bran is a very important part of your daily diet, and as a mum of a child with severe constipation, I have a new-found respect for all the different types of fibre needed in your diet. The boy needs to have a balance of soluble and insoluble fibre as well as the medicines which will stop the need for any further disimpaction sessions. Having a regular breakfast of bran, is something the dietitian has recommended to us, and the New All-Bran new cereals are a great and tasty solution.

Next time you find yourself hungry at 11am then why not try the All-Bran 5 day challenge, and see if it stops the tummy rumbles for you, I know it’s worked for me!
