Kellogg’s Exciting ‘Seed to Spoon’ Approach – Start Simple, Start Right

Eating breakfast is especially important for kids.  Children need the energy they get from eating breakfast in order to perform well in school.  At ‘Meet-n-Greet’ before the school year starts, three of my kids teachers told parents that they are going to ask our children what they had for breakfast every day.  Talk about putting parents on the spot! Breakfast should be a meal and cereal is a great starting point for a good, wholesome breakfast.

When I shop for cereal, I look for a cereal that contains mostly natural ingredients and a small amount of sugar and no food coloring.  I also look for cereal that will go well with fresh fruit.  We have 4 boxes of cereal in our cabinet now in addition to the five listed below and they are Kellogg’s Corn Pops, Kellogg’s Raisin Bran, Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes (my guilty pleasure), and Kellogg’s Fruit Loops (my son’s guilty pleasure).  I’m not kidding.. I suppose I could be a Kellogg’s spokesmom.  Or we could be a spokes-family.  I grew up eating Raisin Bran and Corn Pops and enjoyed Rice Krispies Treats on special occasions.  It’s interesting how childhood memories can revolve around cereal, isn’t it?

So what is “Start Simple, Start Right” all about?

Kellogg’s works closely with local farmers and suppliers to understand the way a single grain, Nebraska corn, Louisiana rice, and Michigan wheat, work. This is what Kellogg’s calls their “Start Simple, Start Right” approach.  Then Kellogg’s prepares their cereals in a method similar to what you do in your own kitchen — just on a larger scale.
That way from seed to spoon, field to family, you get our best in every bite.

Wouldn’t you love to see that?  The making of a cereal with such minimal ingredients and superb flavor.. and yummy snack potential?

Before I go on to the review aspect of the Kellogg’s cereals, let me tell you that I have been ‘out of commission’ as a parent and practically as a human-being for the last five weeks.  I had surgery September 11th and was in my 2nd week of recovery when I had to have emergency surgery September 26th and I am still in recovery from that surgery.  Because of this I have not been able to try or photograph my kids eating these cereals as I normally would for a blog post like this.  However, my kids were more than happy to try all of the five Kellogg’s cereals we were sent and share their thoughts about them.

Kellogg’s Raisin Bran – This is my son’s favorite cereal and thank goodness for that because two years ago his favorite cereal was anything with mad amounts of chocolate in it.  Raisin Bran is also one of my favorite cereals and you can bet I’ll be eating it in the morning again once my recovery is over.

Kellogg’s All Bran – It took the kids a few tries to get used to All Bran.  The cereal is not as aesthetically pleasing as children would hope but they were pleasantly surprised by the flavor.  Kellogg’s All Bran has 40% of your daily recommended fiber and don’t fret, there are some pretty amazing recipes to be made with All Bran including Chocolate Chip Cookies and if you’re looking for a little crunch with your ice cream, here’s a recipe for that.

Kellogg’s Corn Flakes – The kids are happy with the texture and flavor of Corn Flakes as long as they add some type of berry or other fruit to it.  We keep a plethora of fruit in the fridge so they just grabbed some and put it in the Corn Flakes and they were happy!

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Original – Rice Krispies is an all time favorite.  A classic.  We all know what recipe the kids LOVE that Rice Krispies is the main ingredient in, right?  So, not only does Rice Krispies make for a fabulous breakfast cereal but also a fun after-school snack in the form of Rice Krispies treats.  If you feel like it, try out my award winning “Very Berry Rice Krispies Treats” recipe!  You and your kids will love it!

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Gluten Free – Much like the original Rice Krispies (also Gluten Free), this version is crispy and snap, krackle, and poppy and the kids love the texture and flavor.  For those with Gluten issues, this is a great alternative.

The new cereal eliminates barley malt (the source of gluten in the original Rice Krispies® cereal) and is made with whole grain brown rice to differentiate it from the original and for flavor. Each serving of the new gluten-free cereal contains 120 calories, less than 1 gram of sugar, 1 gram each of fat and fiber, 3 grams of protein and 190 milligrams of sodium. The cereal is fortified with several vitamins and minerals.
