NEW Low Sugar Oat Cheerios, have just 1.4g of sugar per serving, are rich in fibre and are made with 98% wholegrain. They give families the opportunity to maintain the balance between a great tasting breakfast and a healthier way to start the day.
Freddy is a big fan of Cheerios so he was our first test subject. I didn't tell him they were new, and just gave him a bowlful in his favourite bowl just like I always do. Immediately he looked suspicious and asked why were they all white! Then he tried a few spoonfuls and said that they weren't quite as tasty as his usual three colour Cheerios, but they were OK. We compromised by adding a handful of regular Cheerios to the bowl, and he yummied them all up.
For me, this is a success story. Freddy is the boy who hates change and likes exactly what he likes. I happily adopt compromises that will mean he is still getting all the taste and crunch, but with less sugar in half of what he consumed. I will never make mealtimes a battlefield, and when a happy compromise can be reached, I think it moves things forward for the better with everyone still smiling. The wholegrain goodness and lower sugar recipe provides a good start to the day for my little boy.
Ian, on the other hand, always complains about the sweetness of cereals, so the Low Sugar Oat Cheerios were perfect for him. As oats are such a superfood, packed with slow release energy, these cereals make a great start to the day. They are quick and convenient and they retain the element of fun with their tasty 'O' format.
It is good that Nestle are responding to the new guidelines on sugar, allowing us all to continue enjoying our favourite cereals in a healthier way.
