I am always looking for new things to try and when I find something really great, I just have to share it with all of you.
This week I discovered a delicious new cereal; Fruity Cheerios. I was expecting them to be overly sweet like Kellogg’s Froot Loops, but to my surprise and delight, they weren’t. They have the awesome flavor of cheerios that we’ve all grown to love, but they have a touch of fruity flavor that makes them hard to put down. Even my husband liked them! And he’s really picky…
I don’t have kids yet (she’s still in the oven) but I know this is a cereal that I would feel good about giving my child. They are naturally flavored and have 25% less sugar than the leading fruity cereal. Fruity Cheerios only contain 10g sugar, 110 calories per 30g serving. The leading fruity cereal has a whopping 14g sugar, 110 calories per 30g serving.
Not only are they low in sugar content, they have 12 essential vitamins and minerals. They are also an excellent source of whole grain. They have at least 16g per serving; at least 48g recommended daily.
This cereal will give your kids the flavor they adore with a touch of real fruit juice in each fruity “O”. This is truly a cereal you can feel good about your kids eating. Plus, they won’t be bouncing off the walls after breakfast, so you’ll have more time to spend on yourself and looking fashionable!! Just another way to make lives a little easier for our fashionable moms out there!
