the truth of the matter is that i am a sporadic breakfast eater, at best. if i have to choose between getting dressed in the morning and eating breakfast, i generally choose to get dressed.
kelloggs fiberplus cereals have given me a better incentive to make sure i actually make time to feed myself in the morning. i have recognized that i need more healthy fiber in my diet (try as i might, i just haven't been able to incorporate more vegetables into my morning or lunchtime routine). kelloggs fiberplus cereals have offered me a very tasty way to get more fiber.
i had the pleasure of trying kelloggs fiberplus berry yogurt crunch and kelloggs fiberplus cinnamon oat crunch. actually, i left with the kids for a week right after the package arrived. when i came back, bill had already eaten the entire box of fiberplus berry yogurt, so i think it is safe to say that, from his perspective that cereal is a hit. the flakes are lightly sweetened which gives them a crunch i like (i really hate soggy cereal). there are yogurt covered clusters and berry clusters as well that are a welcome addition. each serving provides 25g of whole grain which is 40% of your daily recommended allowance of fiber.
obviously bill likes this cereal, and i do too (now that i have bought myself a box to try). i find it is a little sweet for my taste (in the morning--i love it for an evening snack). this is the kind of cereal i like to have on top of a plain cereal, like corn flakes or cheerios.
the other box i tried was kelloggs fiberplus cinnamon oat crunch. these are similar to cheerios but they have a lot more cinnamon. i really liked the cinnamon flavor of this cereal. again, the cereal is pretty sweet (7g of sugar for a 3/4 cup serving). but you can't beat the fact that you get 16g of whole grain and 35% of your daily recommended allowance of fiber).
both cereals are also full of antioxidants which i find beneficial. if i'm going to eat something this sweet, either for a snack or for breakfast, then i would like to choose something that has plenty of health benefits for me and the kids.
i received two boxes of kelloggs fiberplus cereals for the purpose of this review. regardless, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are purely my own.
