Hi



Does anyone know where I can find a shop / Supermarket that sells Weetabix and/or Ready Brek ceriels. My son wont eat any other ceriel and we are nearly running out of supplies brought from the UK.



I have tried Carrefour, Migro's etc and cant find them anywhere ......

Afraid that you are out of luck, as I've never seen any UK brand foods in the stores, aside from the ubiquitous Nestle products.



Perhaps try a shop in Nisantasi or there's one in Bebek that specialises in import food goods. Alternatively try these websites, not sure how it stands with customs etc but might be worth a shot.

So whats wrong teaching kids they should eat what is prepared for them, and not the other way round.

That is not the issue, it was the way it was said. If the family have recently moved here which it sounds like they have, then it takes time to change things.Especially if you have come from UK or the US where children get pretty much what they want when they want.

I dont see that as an issue, but there are to many children who instead of making life more hassled by insisting on Weetabix, instead of an alternative cereal. What will be next up, if we always just cave in to our childrens demands they turn out to be spoilt, uncompromising adults latter on in life, in this way we teach them that respect is given and not granted. But lets not get to Freudian, it is after all the parents who decide at the end of the day what they think is best.

Shaun i assume you use a shop near by quite often and know the people there well.

If you ask them to import wetabix or readibreak i am sure they will try.

yes it will be expensive but they will do it for you just like they import sauces chocolate etc worth a try surely
