The company also said that, the independent market data has been showing that, the breakfast cereals have been actually eaten with yoghurt or milt in around 92 percent of the cases, which is mainly changing the nutritional profile of the meal.

The company also contends that, including the added milk changes calculation by decreasing the proportion of salt and sugar content relative to the weight of the complete serving.

Chris Silcock, managing director of Kellogg’s UK said, the now believe that, the formula of being used by the government of the United Kingdom for measuring the nutritional value of the breakfast cereal has been wrong and has not been implemented legally and it is also measuring the cereals dry when they are almost eaten with milk.
