We’ve covered vegan granola, porridge and muesli elsewhere on this site but this is a quick heads-up to mainstream supermarket-style breakfast cereals. It’s not exhaustive but it will give you a few ideas!
See Viva!’s top plant milks… there are lots of amazing ones out there now!
So what makes a breakfast cereal NOT vegan? The most obvious things to look for are: Vitamin D (not usually vegan) added dairy, eg whey powder, milk, yoghurt; or honey.
But that still leaves plenty to choose from! Also check out the free-from sections for even more options.
