If you are looking for a delicious and healthy breakfast cereal, look no further because Cheerios has introduced a new product that packs a healthy punch! It is called Cheerios Protein and it comes in two flavors: Oats & Honey and Cinnamon Almond. Not only is it just as delicious as the other Cheerios varieties, it is also packed with 7g of protein (11g with milk). Cheerios Protein also has 27 grams of whole grain per serving, which is more than half of the recommended daily amount, and it’s a good source of fiber. I almost forgot to mention that each serving also contains 10-50% of the daily recommended amount of 13 vitamins and minerals including Folic Acid, Iron, Zinc, Vitamin B, and more. You would think it could not get better than that, but it does. Cheerios Protein also leaves you feeling full longer and gives you long lasting energy.
Thanks to Cheerios, I was able to sample both flavors of Cheerios Protein, Oats & Honey and Cinnamon Almond. I could not pick a favorite because I liked them both very much for different reasons. Oats & Honey combines toasted whole grain O’s, crunchy oat granola clusters and real honey to make one delicious cereal. Honey Nut Cheerios is a staple in our house because of its amazing flavor and Oats & Honey had a similar flavor and that is probably why I liked it so much. Cinnamon Almond brings together toasted whole grain O’s, crunchy almond granola clusters, and real cinnamon to make one flavorful cereal. If you like the taste of cinnamon, you will love this cereal! Both cereals are equally great it just depends on your flavor of choice. Give them both a try … you won’t be sorry.
Another thing I love about this cereal is that it also makes a great snack. A healthy and delightful snack for around 220 calories. It would be great for the kids to munch on in between meals, after school or for an evening snack. Same goes for us parents, eat it in between meals, while you are out running errands, or for an evening snack. No need to deprive yourself because now you have a healthy and delicious choice!
Cheerios has teamed up with a few bloggers to give (3) lucky winners (2) boxes of Cheerios Protein, one of each flavor! Giveaway ends 8/20/14 at 11:59 pm EST. Good luck!
