breakfast cereal

[English] plural breakfast cereals

Breakfast cereals are based on cereal grains such as corn, oats, rice or wheat, treated in various ways and eaten usually with milk, sometimes with a little added sugar, at breakfast. Some have added vitamins or minerals but they should not be depended to provide the daily required intake as sometimes these shake to the bottom of the box and are found in that nasty bit which nobody wants when the box is nearly empty.
