A breakfast cereal is usually the first thing we eat in the morning. In fact, it's a tradition that dates back hundreds of years, when a bowl of porridge was often the meal to go to work on. Today, the choice of cereals is vast, with most eaten as part of a balanced breakfast, or a snack food, at least in Western societies. Many cereals are oat-based and high in fiber while low in fat.
