NEW Post Alpha-Bits.
I don’t know about you but, Post Alpha-Bits brings back so many memories for me. I used to have so much fun in the morning with a bowl and a spoon. It was pure excitement to see what I could come up with. I would move the letters around and create words or phrases and of course–spell out my name! You know we have all done that.
The truth is that there’s a story in every bowl.
Post Alpha-Bits cereal starts a child’s day with limitless possibilities. The Alpha-Bits shapes are a fun way to bring their imagination to life as each new bowl holds a story waiting to be told. To be able to share this same excitement with my girls in the morning is a joy in itself. It makes me happy to see them have as much fun as I did when I was their ages.
That’s the thing about Alpha-Bits cereal; it has the great taste and alphabet delight that kids and moms L-O-V-E. But, did you know that Post Alpha-Bits cereal provides a source of 9 essential nutrients plus is an excellent source of Iron and Thiamin? That my friends, shows you that Alpha-Bits cereal are more than just fun and games.
I’m super stoked to share that Post Foods Canada Inc. recently revamped its Alpha-Bits cereal with 40 per cent less sugars than the original Alpha-Bits. It is still made with whole grain, without the addition of artificial flavours and is a source of fibre in a 1 cup serving. This news makes me very happy as a Mom because like many parents, I want to be able to give my girls a balanced diet. Since Alpha-Bits cereal now has 40 per cent less sugars, it really makes a world of difference.
The cereal now has 6 g of sugars per 1 cup (30 g) serving size, down from 10 g in the original. Artificial colours have also been removed which is a huge plus. What’s more is that Alpha-Bits cereal will now have less sugar per serving than any other leading competitive Sweet Kids cereal.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and Post knows that families across Canada are concerned about providing healthier breakfast options to their children, so they set out to make it easier for parents to do that by reducing the sugars in Alpha-Bits cereal. I go one step further and I serve fresh fruit and protein along with the cereal, that way they start their day with all the fuel they need!
Just in time for the new school year, you can find the new Alpha-Bits cereal in participating grocery stores across the country. It will be available on store shelves nationally!
We picked up a box to enjoy this month and we love it. I have to admit; I snuck a bowl or two and slipped into nostalgia for a short while. I had forgotten how tasty it was (and how fun), I might have to sneak some from my daughter’s more often!
