Are they suitable for vegetarians?



Can't see anything on the bottle, but the sainsbury website only has the chocolate version and it lists it as suitable for vegetarians

The ingredients are mainly milk and various kinds of grain

Look at the amount of sugar in these! OMG

So were bottling cold sick now?

The crap that companies make and people buy...jeez..

How about this for breakfast on the go instead....

These are made by Mars as as far as I can tell they basically just wanted another way to package sugar. Don't get me wrong - they are very sweet and rather morish, but I'm sure there's better alternatives for people wanting a breakfast. These are basically packed with sugar and precious little else.

breakfast of champions.

I think a few people are getting a bit overly concerned with the sugar here. These are less than 200 calories and full of fibre and some protein. Much more fibre than fruit and what not. As they are mostly semi skimmed milk there is little fat so in terms of taste, removing the natural sugar in milk, you have about 3.5 teaspoons of sugar in.

Obviously these aren't ideal breakfasts but they're not marketed as alternatives, just a replacement if you are rushing, forgot etc. I suspect most people have similar amount of sugar regardless and with less fibre e.g. natural yogurt with honey, dried fruit, fruit compote etc muesli/granola with yogurt and so on.

I'm failing to understand the concept here - I get why you'd have Weetabix in a bottle for on the go but who honestly couldn't eat a Tracker bar on the move??

Anyway, no offence to OP, still a good price if you like them.

Like a liquidised Tracker bar.

Yes, you're right. One of my kids resolutely will not eat breakfast- they say they're just not hungry- the rest of us all have something wholewheat in the morning. Anything is better than nothing, and prob no worse than something like pain au chocolat. Thanks for posting op, nice find

Each bottle has 26.2g of sugar, Thats more like 6.5 teaspoons. So it's basically a sugary milk drink rebranded as 'breakfast' so people think it's vaguely healthy.

Sorry I meant 3.5 teaspoons of added sugar. Lactose is a naturally occurring milk sugar and is not considered added. Without the sugar and as it only has a small amount of fat you'd be drinking a fibrous milk drink which sounds like soggy weetabix in bottle. Fat and sugar help give things taste. The fibre in fruit is supposed to help limit rate of sugar absorption. This contains double the fibre of fruit and much more than fruit juice.

They could have used fruit juice or a few teaspoons of honey or something but that's still sugar. As I say, most people probably have similar amounts of sugar for breakfast in muesli, fruit, coffee, juice etc so relatively speaking this isn't that far out there imo. At less than 200 calories too, it shouldn't be a problem for anyone's diet to be enjoyed in, like with anything, moderation.

I was wondering if you saw any differences in health or weight, mind, concentration etc with your children that eat breakfast and the one that doesn't.

Not a jot tbh. It upsets me to see her leave the house without breakfast- I can't understand it, as I wake up starving! Tried lots of things over the years- I'll find something she'll manage to eat, but it'll only last a few weeks, til she's back to having nothing. But, no, no difference at all

These are delish!! Why are you all concerned about sugar content? If it tastes good drink it! That's my motto haha If you worry too much about the stuff they put in foods you'll never eat more than a few bits of fruit and veg!

That's good to hear it has not affected her too much. When I was younger I rarely got to eat breakfast not necessarily by choice more to do with the fact that I was always nearly late for school and there was rarely any breakfast available. I never had any issues with weight or fitness, was very active, definitely felt I could do with more nutrition and focus however always feeling hungry.
