For it to be sauce or gravy, there would have to be a heavy ratio of cereal to milk. But it's usually the other way around; the milk is practically soup. It's to cereal what water-based soup is to noodles; it's what the solid stuff lies in.

I guess "broth" would be the closest analogue, although it's not quite that. It's just, you know, milk.
