The study will employ a four-way repeated measures crossover design. All participants will encounter each breakfast type ,breakfast cereals,high fibre, moderate, moderate-low and low fibre.once for each of the four intervention periods.They will be administered to measure their effect on satiety over a 4 hour period across the morning and energy intake at mid-morning .The study will be conducted in the same children in 2 consecutive weekly periods covering 2 of the test interventions per week. The interventions will be randomised such that each child may be equally likely to receive any one of the 4 interventions on any of the 4 testing occasions.The participants will follow their habitual diet for the period between the four test interventions.
