SOME 10 days ago, foreign minister Ioannis Kasoulides raised expectations by announcing the possibility of a deal with Turkey for the opening of the fenced off area of Famagusta, for the return of its inhabitants. In exchange the Cyprus government would agree to the opening of Tymbou airport to direct flights. ...

Take 7 Organic Breakfast Cereals

Weetabix Organic

Making their first appearance on Cypriot supermarket shelves not so long ago, I’ve been a fan of these from the start. Although many turn their nose up at the idea, I love to have two Weetabix with warm milk in the morning. Don’t leave it like that in the bowl too long though or your morning munch will turn into a cement-like gunk. Their biggest selling point? Full of wholegrain goodness and high in fibre, they are very filling and low in fat too. Even geared to environmentally conscious buyers, they claim that the box is made of 80 per cent recycled cardboard.
Price: €3.67

Organic Chocolate Rice Puffs

There’s just something about organic products that makes them shy away from other goodies on the aisle. Somehow, the manufacturers seem to be in unison about how these goods should be packaged - bland and unimposing. Unfortunately that means you’ll be inclined to give them a miss. Then again, boring packaging can be a good thing as what you see is pretty much what you get - definitely the case with these chocolate puffs in their see through plastic bag! Take ‘chocolate’ out of the equation and put ‘tasteless’ into it and viola, you’ve got the gist of what these rice puffs are like. I can’t imagine they’d go down too well with the kids and they even contain added sugar, proving that just because you’re buying organic, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re making the healthiest choice.
Price: €4.02

Honey Flakes

Loads of info on the ingredients and nutritional value of these honey flakes but all in German I’m afraid. Indulging in these golden coloured flakes without a clue about what they contain, I just let my taste buds do the talking. Not too sickly sweet, these flakes are lovely to munch on even without milk. Sans spoon and bowl I got totally carried away in front of the TV - these should be sold with a ‘highly addictive’ label on the front of the box. The good thing is that honey gives these their sweetness instead of tons of added sugar; definitely one of my favourites.
Price: €5.30

Organic Branberry Muesli

“With recent research showing that organic food has the highest amounts of beneficial minerals, essential amino acids and vitamins, why would you want to eat anything else?” ask the manufacturers on the back of the box. I couldn’t agree more. With no added sugar in these, strawberries and blueberries provide a burst of summer flavour, while the sultanas and raisins sweeten the cereal naturally. But I’m making them sound far tastier than they really are. On a scale of one to ten, I’d rate them as a just above average six.
Price: €5.04

Bran Flakes

I tried these last and had a horrible pre-conception about the mini wheat flakes. I want to be healthy, I really do, but as I reached for the dreaded spoonful I thought I’d rather die young than have to face these every morning before work. There’s no sugar in them at all - no surprise there. In fact, it’s the shortest list of ingredients of the lot. Just whole wheat flower, wheat bran, maize malt and sea salt. I personally couldn’t do it but if you’re looking for a really healthy option and want to shed some weight before you slip on that swimsuit, then you may just be able to brave the brutal bran flake.
Price: €4.61

Evernat Organic Crunch

Nine euros and eleven cent? I know that buying organic can be a little pricey but this particular muesli must contain gold dust. This time the list of ingredients is in French. I have a quick scan and manage to make sense of all the basics. No colourings, plenty of vitamins, rich in fibre, suitable for the whole family… no gold dust then. On tasting the mighty crunch I have to say that they are absolutely heavenly. With or without milk, I couldn’t stop reaching for more. Just the right sweetness, brilliantly crunchy, topped off with raisins, almonds and walnuts. My absolute favourite, so much so that I may be leaving my Weetabix days behind as I embrace this expensive delight. The all round winner when it comes to taste hands down, if only it wasn’t so dear.
Price: €9.11

Organic Choco Flakes

KaliBio brand is famous for its organic range, and here’s a company that have tried to make the packaging appealing; the back of the box boasts a game, fact box and all sorts of info on a healthy breakfast. Geared towards the young ones, I wasn’t too enthusiastic on ‘spotting the difference’ as I munched away, but I did enjoy the way these flakes stayed crunchy even when drenched in milk. These are a good option if you want your kids to eat organic but can’t seem to lure them away from the idea of chocolaty delights as they drag themselves out of bed. They contain organic brown cane sugar, which is healthier than white, and will keep the young ones smiling for at least a few hours post breakfast time.
Price: €6.75
