RW experts pick nutritious cereals fit for runners

|Kellogg's All Bran|
The name says it all. A 45g serving of All Bran contains just 620 kilojoules and 13 grams of fibre, which helps keep you feeling full. That’s more than half your need for the day, says Anthony Meade, sports dietitian.
|Uncle Tobys Plus Protein|
It contains plenty of fibre and same amount of protein as a small egg. Meade recommends mixing it with your favourite natural or fruit yoghurt for a probiotic boost to support gut health.
|Sanitarium Light and Tasty Macadamia and Honey|
A 40-gram serving of this flake cereal provides a healthy dose of monounsaturated fats, well known to support heart health along with an Aussie twist on the traditional mixed grain cereal.
|Kellogg's Mini Wheats Blackcurrant|
Meade likes Mini Wheats since it contains five grams each of fibre and protein. Blackcurrants are rich in vitamin C, which helps boost iron absorption from grain based foods.
