Delicious organic childrens breakfast muesli
Have young children and struggling to find a healthy breakfast that keeps them satisfied? Want to feed your youngsters natural and organic food that is fun and appealing? Look no further than our two new and exciting breakfast cereals for children. Read on for more details…
Specially Designed For Children
Regular customers will have spotted our recent additions to the popular Bohlsener Mill range – the only muesli and breakfast crunchy designed specially for young children. The cereals were developed together with mothers and thoroughly tested with hundreds of young children to come up with the perfect healthy yet appealing recipe. We are very proud to be the first company in the UK to offer these brand new organic breakfast cereals to your children.
Organic Cereals to Set Them Up For the Day Ahead
Children need a proper breakfast to give them a good start to the day and enough energy for their busy day ahead. The Bohlsener organic muesli and crunchy have been carefully formlated for the needs of young children. Rich in fibre from the wholegrain cereals and with no added refined sugar both cereals are made from only the best organically grown ingredients.
Raisins Get The Chop – What the Taste Testers Said
When Bohlsener Mill were developing these cereals they got feedback from hundreds of children. For example, many kids said they didn’t want raisins – although they’re sweet they really don’t appeal to lots of children.
As with all products that I sell on the Ulula website, I undertook some trials of my own amongst our regular group of taste testers. “Look, mum, the milk is pink!” was the first comment from one little one while the older children found the vanilla stars “pretty awesome”. Every tester loved the delicious mild taste and the varied textures from the grains, flakes and shapes. Bohlsener Mill are certainly on to a winner with their new cereals for kids.

Bohlsener Mill - makers of prize winning breakfast cereals
There seems to be a bit of a breakfast cereal theme going on in my last few posts – so I’ll make this a quick one. We have just been told by Bohlsener Mill that a number of their organic mueslis and crunchies have received prestigious organic food industry awards for the quality of their breakfast cereals.
The German DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft e.V.) organisation was founded in 1885 and today has over 20 000 members whose aims are the promotion and recognition of excellence in organic food production. Members vote annually on products that excel in production methods, looks and taste.
The Matinee Organic Muesli from Ancient Grain Varieties won silver prize while the Matinee Organic Lemony Yoghurt Crunchy and the Matinee Organic Crunchy with Plain Chocolate both won gold prizes!
The Ulula team can certainly confirm that all three of these breakfast cereals do taste absolutely yummy! Check out the rest of the Bohlsener Mill range – they have some amazing food.

After re-reading my article on our growing range of organic breakfast cereals it struck me that breakfast is such an important meal in ways other than as a means of refueling the body.
I don’t know about your family but ours tends only to eat breakfast together at the weekends – and that seems such a shame. Busy Britain does not have time to eat breakfast like it used to. Breakfast is an ideal opportunity to spend time catching up, talking about the day ahead and generally socialising. Of course, time spent with children at the breakfast table is also an important opportunity for us to model the kind of behaviour at the meal table that we would like to see, as well as practising social skills.
For us, weekend breakfasts are such a treat – chatting over the cereals and other goodies can sometimes last for hours! We really must try and find a compromise on weekdays – it must be possible for at least some members of the same family to eat a bowl of breakfast cereals together while still being able to get ready to dash off to our different day time activities, whether work or school.
What are your experiences? How do you juggle the demands of time at breakfast time? Can you manage to sit together with your children at breakfast?

Breakfasts fit for a king
I was recently asked by a friend why the Ulula website sells such a huge range of breakfast cereals. For me it has always been a natural extension to providing high quality organic baby foods – if you give your baby such a good start in life, why not carry on?
Take a look at Ulula’s growing range of organic, wholesome breakfast cereals – we currently have 17 cereals including porridge oats, flakes, pops, crunchies and mueslis. All this of course, without mentioning the 11 varieties of Holle organic baby porridges for babies under 12 months.
There is a much quoted saying that tells us to ‘eat breakfast like a king, eat lunch like a lord and eat dinner like a pauper’. It is certainly true that breakfast is indeed a very important meal. A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day.
After a good night’s rest, your blood sugar, or glucose levels, are very low since you’ve been asleep without a meal for 6-10 hours. Your body is basically running on empty in the morning.
Research shows that children who eat breakfast have more energy, do better in school, and eat healthier throughout the day. Without breakfast, kids can get irritable, restless, and tired. When it comes to schooling, eating breakfast dramatically affects chilren’s abilities with regards to concentration, problem solving skills and creativity. So make time for breakfast — for you and your child!
