Breakfast cereals

I have an idea of what I can and canít eat in general.

Though when it comes to cereals what are the best low fibre cereals? (UK)

I used to love crunchy nut corn flakes but definitely cannot eat that now! I have also checked coco pops and they looks like they are high in fibre

Please post any cereals that you eat or are low in fibre that you might think will be good!

When my Crohn's kids are feeling crummy, they usually can eat rice krispies.

I say the typical type of cereals is an absolute no go with IBD.
Milk is a no go for sure, because of the risk of MAP infection.
The cereals with refined sugars added are feeding the bad bacteria and will make symptoms worse. Also they are very poor sources of the micronutrients we IDB patients need badly. Not a good way to start the day diet I would say.

It is much better for the gut bacteria to have unsweetened fruit, nuts, berries, maybe an egg and an advocado or other all natural foods.
If the digestion seems to agrees with grain, then regular homemade oatmeal would be the way to go. I put raw cocoa and raisins on top. Maybe a little honey for sweetening.

ronroush, those cheerios seem like a better choice than most. The sugar content is only 1 gram / serving (28 grams) according to this list:

The MAP theory notwithstanding, there is research showing that milk consumption is actually associated with decreased risk of IBD: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27120568

As for cereal, good old corn flakes are pretty low in fiber.

I make almond milk out of almonds, dates, and filtered water. The Crohn's kids have that instead of dairy on their cereal.

We have done every non dairy milk here (except nut due to tree nut allergy )
No difference in Crohns symptoms at all on that versus organic cows milk
Over 7 years clean scopes until we switched to Stelara
Even then mucousal healing was taking place

Cereal
Plain Cheerios
Fruity Cheerios
Chocolate cheerios
Life cereal

For fun snacks (not breakfast )
Fruit loops (or organic version )
Apple Jacks

Mostly mine drinks neocate jr chocolate for breakfast
Since half his calories are formula

When the CD is in remission, I can. When I am experiencing a flare I cut out most of it and return to vegetable soup

most cereals are FULL OF SUGAR. You don't need it. yes they can be low fat, low calorie but doesn't remove great amounts of sugars anyway.
