A Guide to Vegan Breakfast Cereals
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 🙂

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?
We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.
Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference!
