Cereal for breakfast 'boosts brain and belly'

Another "excuse" to eat more cereal!

A BOWL of cereal is being touted as the perfect brain food for children preparing to start back at school.

Welsh research has found that those who eat cereal every morning are more mentally alert and less tired than their non-breakfasting friends.

A bowl of cornflakes first thing in the morning has been found to boost alertness by 12% and cutmemory and attention span difficulties by up to 10%.

But the common breakfast cereal has also has long-term health benefits, including reducing the likelihood of suffering from stomach complaints.
