Ready Brek (sometimes written Ready brek) is an oat-based breakfast cereal produced by Weetabix Limited. It is intended to be served hot, and comes in four varieties — 'original', 'chocolate', 'honey' and 'Seriously Oaty'. A butterscotch flavour was marketed during the 1970s. In the early 1970s Butter Flavour Ready Brek (not the later Butterscotch flavour) was also available.
It was launched in 1957 as an instant porridge, then in 1969 as an instant hot cereal. The product is now called a smooth porridge, as porridge is now once again popular. The brand was purchased by Weetabix in June 1990, and it is understandably more popular in autumn and winter. Ready Brek had the slogans "Central heating for kids" and "Get up and Glow", and television adverts during the 1970s and 1980s showed children walking to school with a superimposed radiant glow.
