Modern Muesli gone Cuckoo Bircher

Cuckoo Group Lifestyle Shot

I am all about breakfast, it is the one meal that I crave to get right. It starts the day off on the right note and I tend to eat better because of it all day. There has been a health explosion in nutrition over the last few years, and itís wonderful to see new food businesses bursting with the right type of goodies. 

Cuckoo Bircher muesli caught my eye not only because of its nutritional value (with an average of 280 calories per 190g single-serve pot), but the pot sized portions made them super practical. I was immediately thinking, 'yes that will work on Monday morning stuck in traffic on the school run…'

But 'what about the taste?' I hear you say. Well this is where they have stood out, a range of five adventurous flavours include, Elderflower & Cranberry, Choco Sour Cherry and Mango & Coconut. This is no wall-flower muesli, every spoonful of Cuckoo Bircher muesli is varied and interesting with juicy berries, crunchy dark linseeds and flavourful swirls of fruity compote. Large jumbo sized oats with creamy yoghurt left me feeling full and nutritionally smug. My favourite was the Elderflower & Cranberry which even managed to tempt my fussy 6 year old. 

Another great thing about health foods is they can slot into snack time and the Cuckoo Bircher range is fantastic for using in recipes. Here is one I tried, super easy to do and good-old tasty!
