Anything homemade is definitely more satisfying – and nutritious – compared to store-bought foods. So, why not make your breakfast cereal at home? Kids love cereals because they are crunchy, sweet and contain loads of dry fruits and nuts too. With sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and lots of nuts apart from healthy cereals like wheat germ and oats, this Power Packed Cereal will give ample energy and nutrients for an active day, as well as antioxidants to fight the pollution and infections that surround us.
