Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Not everyone has time to cook a healthy breakfast, nor to sit down and eat it. However, eating breakfast is important-eating regular meals keeps you feeling satisfied and helps you fight cravings for junk food. According to the American Dietetic Association (www.eatright.org) website, “Having a nutrient-packed start to your day can give you energy to perform better, both mentally and physically.” They also learned through a study that breakfast cereal may promote healthy weight in children. Fiber One Caramel Delight cereal is a delicious source of fiber and whole grains that adults and children will enjoy.

Healthy Cereal with Great Flavor and Texture

In the old days, the term “healthy cereal” might have brought up thoughts of tough, fibrous cereal that closely resembled the box it came in. Cereal so hardy, the most determined milk cannot break it down and make it easier to swallow. However, Fiber One Caramel Delight is not of that ilk! This whole grain cereal, despite being high fiber, is crisp and delicious. If you take too long to eat it, it will even get soggy, just like regular cereal.

This healthy cereal is sweet enough to please the kids, but not so sweet that it overwhelms the sophisticated palate. The caramel flavor is light, but definitely present. The cereal even looks like something kids would eat, rather than looking like grass or twigs, but it is not shaped like stars and moons and lucky horse shoes, so adults would not be embarrassed to eat it in polite company.

According to the box, Fiber One Caramel Delight received an award in 2008 from American Culinary Chefsbest for Best Taste Award.

Fiber One Caramel Delight Nutrition Information
