Apple Jacks & Froot Loops - Now with Fiber!

I have to avoid the cereal isle at the grocery store if my girls are with me. For obvious reasons, they always gravitate towards to brightly colored kids cereals I've tried to avoid. I completely understand this gravitational pull, I had to ween myself off the kiddie cereal when I graduated college and became an "adult".

Kellogg's is looking to change that image with 2 of their top selling kids cereals. Both Froot Loops and Apple Jacks now have 3 grams of fiber per serving in them (which is good news, considering 9 out of 10 kids lack fiber in their diet). These cereals also include ingredients such as whole-grain corn flour, whole-grain oat flour, oat fiber and soluble corn fiber.

We recently received sample boxes of both the cereals, with and without the fiber. After a highly scientific study conducted around 7:30 in the morning by a 2 and 5 year old, we've determined that we can't taste a bit of difference. My girls loved the cereal without fiber, and they knocked back bowls of the cereal with fiber.

It's good to know that when it comes to breakfast cereal, we don't have to sacrifice good nutrition for food our kids want to eat.

Visit Kellogg's Nutrition to find out more about what's hiding in the cereal box.

FYI - I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Kellogg’s and received boxes of Froot Loops and Apple Jacks and a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.
