Listening to Rice Crispies

What does your cereal say to you? We like to start our mornings listening to our Rice Krispies telling us secrets. Kind of silly, but we like to have fun. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it is really important that it is healthy and nutritious. We like to eat cereal with whole grains like WheatRice and Corn. Click the links to learn more about where they originate from and explains the “Seed to Spoon” approach that Kellogg’s takes to make their cereals.

Kelloggs Cereal
The goodness of a simple grain is the best day to start your day. We were sent boxes of the following cereals to try out, but we already purchase them on a regular basis so we already knew how yummy they are: Kellogg’s Raisin Bran, Kellogg’s All Bran, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Original, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Gluten Free. We like to have a variety of healthy cereals around for a number of reasons.
  • My kids love to snack throughout the day. By having a healthy cereal on hand, I feel comfortable letting them graze away.
  • I like to use the cereals in recipes to add a little twist to the every day meals. You can substitute breading, add to pancakes, top salads and more.
  • It is always great to have a quick go-to breakfast on hand. That way there is no excuse not to eat.
What do you look for when you buy cereal? I look for low sugar content with ingredients I can pronounce. I want it to taste good to me and the kids so I know it won’t go to waste. My pre-school age son, Jakobi, loves the Raisin Bran the most. He calls it his crunchies. Just look at all the raisins in a normal pour.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kellogg’s. I received sample products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
