Best Ways To Store And Use Cereal (Dry)

Best Storage

The cupboard or pantry is the best place to store cereal. Keep it in a cool, dark and dry place.

Once opened, cereal should be stored in its original packaging, sealed with a bag clip. You can also store cereal in an airtight container to keep it dry and fresh.

Cereal is a dry product and considered low risk in terms of food safety, so it should last up to a couple months after its best before date if is stored in a dry environment.

Can I Freeze It?


You can freeze cereal. It’ll keep your milk refreshingly cold when you eat it! Place in a freezer bag, and make sure you don’t pack it too tightly so it won’t clump together.

Fresher For Longer

Soft or stale cereal can be refreshed in a hot oven for a couple of minutes to crisp it up.

Use It Up

Rice Krispie squares are a popular way to use up your cereal. Cornflakes can be used as an alternative crispy coating instead of breadcrumbs.

Choose cereals where the first ingredient is a whole grain and look for cereals with high fibre and low sugar. Starting your day with a nutritional boost makes a difference in terms of mental clarity and energy levels!
