Debunking Breakfast Cereal Myths


Moms, we all know you want the best for your kids down to what they get to eat for breakfast. But did you know that a rice meal isn’t necessarily the best way to kickstart your kid’s day? There’s a better, more nutritious way to start your little one’s day and it’s in the form of breakfast cereals. However, before you grab the first box of cereals you see, here are 3 more breakfast myths we’re busting for you:

Myth 1: Children won’t get their fibre without vegetables.

While we all know that vegetables are very helpful for growing bodies, it’s not the only thing from which a child can get his fibre requirement. Food like whole grain cereals are also fun alternatives to get your child to have some fibre in their bodies. The fibre in whole grain not only aids in digestion, it also helps keep the stomach feel full for longer and your child more energetic for longer.

Myth 2: Don’t bother with boxed cereals.

It’s a common myth that all boxed cereals targeted towards kids are nothing but sugar to make breakfast attractive for them. However, not all boxed cereals are created equal. There are breakfast cereals that are actually packed with vitamins and nutrients to give your kid that much-needed fuel for school. Just make sure to look for cereals made from whole grain when scanning the grocery aisles and avoid those that are not. The complex carbohydrates in whole grain cereals like KOKO KRUNCH can help provide the energy that your child needs for the day ahead of him.

Myth 3: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

This isn’t necessarily true as what really matters is what your child eats for the whole course of the day. However, this doesn’t mean that your little one gets a free pass from eating breakfast! Multiple studies1 show that breakfast eaters are more likely to have superior cognitive function and therefore perform better at school given the proper food for breakfast. That’s why it’s important to keep in mind that whole grain cereals also help in the growth and development of a growing body and is therefore a good breakfast choice for children of busy moms like you.

Make your child’s breakfast extra-nutritious with the whole grain goodness of NESTLE KOKO KRUNCH. Filled with essential nutrients like the B vitamins and iron, KOKO KRUNCH is an easy, fuss-free way to give your child the fuel for school that he needs.
