    I have similar work issues as I'm in the Police. However I cook an omelette the night before and take it to work in a container to eat when I arrive (sometimes re heat it, sometimes don't bother). You could always chuck it in the microwave and eat before leaving. Timewise it must be the same as preparing and eating a bowl of cereal?

    I couldn't eat any cereals in my first pregnancy. This is my second pregnancy and I'm on insulin. I have discovered weetabix oaty bars low sugar... I got 5 for 79p in b&ms ... they're what I keep in the car if I hypo .... they don't knock me so high that my sugars are over the target... worth a try :)

    Also, I don't know if it's available in the mainland, but I use irwins 7 seeded bread, one slice with an extreme amount of sun pat no added sugar peanut butter, that takes me to about 7.8, that was before insulin, so for someone who is tolerating better it might be an option :)

    Breakfast I struggled with with my GD. I ended up having some kind of salad in the end. Even on insulin I couldn't eat porridge or any carbs.

    I love breakfast! I normally eat 2 Weetabix with semi skimmed milk and sometimes Porridge with a teaspoon of honey. My blood sugar levels measured 2 hours later are always under what they should be. Ranging from 3.8 at the lowest to 4.8 as an average. I have gestational type 2 Diabetes.

    Welcome @hannahfrance :)

    Those are great levels :) Can I check - do you have Gestational Diabetes or are you saying you were Type 2 before you got pregnant?
