Just Right is the name of a breakfast cereal produced by Kellogg's. It was created in the 1980s for health-conscious, athletic Australians, who are the world's third-biggest cereal eaters.[1] The cereal is sold in the United Kingdom, Canada, Iceland, New Zealand and Australia as of March 2008, but has been discontinued in other markets.

Just Right is composed of wholewheat, corn and riceflakes, with raisins (sultanas in Australia), date nuggets and sliced almonds. It is also labelled as vitamin fortified and low-fat. There are no raisins, date nuggets, or sliced almonds in the Canadian version.

An early commercial for the cereal in the United States has become an internet viral video due to it featuring a then-unknown Tori Amos.
