Have you had your Fibre today?

Making sure two mildly picky children eat a balance diet is hard.  While both love their fruits and vegetables, tolerate some proteins (chickpeas, turkey breast and natural hams are the life savers) and love them some complex carbs, it’s hard to trust that each day they’re getting all their bodies are needing.

Mostly I worry that they’re not getting enough fiber, in particular that Bethany is not getting enough fiber.  She’s my carb-a-vor (takes after her Momma dontcha know) and while there is some fiber to be found in her favourites there really isn’t enough.

Fibre 1 2

When I heard about the new Fibre 1 Almond & Cluster Delight Cereal I was intrigued.  As 1 of 8 brand new products being launched by General Mills this summer, it brings to the table the promise of 40% of your daily required fiber – in ONE bowl!

The question was, how does it taste?  Even more important still – would Bethany actually eat it.

After a few pinches and some very thoughtful faces, Bethany decided that yes she actually does like it!   Both girls decided that they liked the Fibre 1 Almond & Cluster Delight Cereal better as a snack than with milk, which is fine by me.   I’m not sure it’s something they’d eat on a regular basis but I’m still taking it as a “win” for team fiber.

Now, to share the good news with you!

  1. I can't eat fibre, but it is important for my family to be getting enough. They really enjoyed this cereal.

  2. I am always trying to build more fibre into my kid’s diets. They are not great at eating fibre and like all kids need to be reminded to eat healthy. So yes that’s a win for team fibre alright. I will buy this one to try it, or better yet I will get that coupon to try it free in July!!

  3. Since my son is a cheese monster, getting fibre into him is a good idea (if you know what I mean!) We haven’t tried this cereal before … thanks for the review!
