We’re all familiar with the iconic Snap, Crackle and Pop of Rice Krispies cereal, so the urbanmoms.ca team was happy to team up with Kellogg’s to try out NEW MultiGrain Krispies, a high source of fibre. 50 lucky members of our Go2Girlz panel of product testers tried out NEW MultiGrain Krispies with their families, and then shared their opinions with us.
But what’s new and different about MultiGrain Krispies? First, you’ll notice that they’re four times bigger than Rice Krispies (because they have so much good stuff packed into them). And because they’re made with whole grains, they’re a high source of the important nutrient fibre. With each serving containing four grams of fibre, each serving delivers 21 percent of the recommended daily fibre intake for one to three year-olds, and 16 percent for four to eight year-olds. And we think that’s a pretty good start to the day.
But what did the Go2Girlz think of MultiGrain Krispies cereal when they tried it? Overall, their feedback was very positive. Most testers reported that their children loved the flavour and new bigger size of the cereal. And that made the moms happy, because they felt confident about feeding their children this new, high fibre cereal from a trusted, tried-and-true brand. The only drawbacks very few of our testers noted were matters of personal preference – one or two of our panel members did not enjoy the flavour, and a one was disappointed that the cereal is not organic. In the end, almost every one of our testers said they’d recommend MultiGrain Krispies to a friend (in fact, Rebecca, a mom of 2 and Go2Girlz panel member, brought some MultiGrain Krispies to work so a coworker could give it to her children to try!). And nearly all of our testers said they’d buy MultiGrain Krispies again themselves.
Here’s what some of our testers had to say about MultiGrain Krispies:
I like that the fibre content is higher in MultiGrain Krispies than in any other cereal for children. I also like that this cereal is much lower in sugar than most cereals for children. – Rebecca, mom of 2
It’s made with whole grains so it’s definitely a healthier choice than a lot of cereals, and kids really like the taste. – Jennifer, mom of 1
You definitely don’t need to worry whether your kids are going to like them or not…because they’re going to love them…and they’re nutritious. – Heidi, mom of 2
It is a very good choice to feed my little one. It tastes and smells great, with fiber, multigrains and low fat and he likes it! He is a very fussy eater, but loves cereal. – Debra, mom of 1
They’re larger than regular Krispies so they “snack” well. – Julie, mom of 2
I asked my 6 year old what he would rate the product out of 10 and he told me 20. I was surprised by his enthusiasm. He drained the bowl with no nagging from me to hurry up and eat. – Shonna, mom of 2
Interesting approach to a tried and true product that everyone is familiar with. – Alice, mom of 2
