How to Make Healthy Eating Fun

This post about healthy breakfasts that are high in fiber is brought to you by Kellogg’s and The Motherhood, and I’ve been compensated for my time. However, all opinions are my own, as always. Thanks for reading.

Nine out of 10 children do not get enough fiber in their diet. Did you know that? Many of you might not have – but fiber intake is kind of a big thing for me, so I’ve heard this statistic for a long time now. It’s gotten pretty easy for me to make sure I’m getting enough fiber – I love whole grain bread, I’ve switched to mostly brown rice and whole grain pasta – and especially in the fall, I make a ton of soup and chili that are packed full of high-fiber beans. But Abby isn’t as big of a fan of whole grains yet {she just turned 3 in late July.} So I just keep introducing new foods, hoping she’ll find new favorites.

ChooseMyPlate.gov

If you’re trying to help encourage healthier eating, one resource that is super duper helpful is ChooseMyPlate.gov. They have a ton of cool materials and tips to help you out. And we’ve been playing this board game of theirs, where Abby learns what a healthy meal should look like. It makes learning about good foods fun :) {Looking for some ideas of more foods to try? Check out this list of high-fiber foods on MayoClinic.com} And there’s one “fun food” that might surprise you – cereal!

Froot Loops are high in fiber

Kellogg’s knows it’s important to kick off your day with a fiber containing breakfast in order to help get the recommended amount throughout the day. That’s why they offer more ready-to-eat cereals that are a good source of fiber {at least 3 grams} than any other U.S. food company. Kellogg’s Froot Loops, Apple Jacks and Mini-Wheats all have between 3-6 grams of fiber per serving, making them a great source of fiber that’s fun for kids. Kellogg’s cereals can be an important – and tasty – source of the fiber plus the whole grains children need to help keep their tummies happy. I mean, who doesn’t love Froot Loops, right? We eat them for breakfast, and for afternoon snacks.

Frosted Mini Wheats are high in fiber

And cereal isn’t just for kids. I love me some Frosted Mini Wheats…. And I love how easy it is to have a quick bowl in the morning – no cooking, little clean-up, and it fills me up until the afternoon. We use cereal in tons of recipes too – from snack and trail mixes, to fun bars and cookies. Using a cereal like these, that’s high in fiber, and filled with good stuff, makes our treats healthier.
