The amount of sugar in your favourite cereals will shock you

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it stands to reason that we should be choosing food that’s going to keep us as energised as possible throughout the day.

Cereals and muesli are the go-to for many Aussies, but if you thought you were making a healthy choice with your brekkie, you may be sorely mistaken.

Scroll through the gallery above to see some of the biggest offenders and tell us in the comments below, were you surprised to see how much sugar is in your breakfast?
