Be Healthy: Fiber One 80 Calories Cereal {Review & Giveaway}

Fiber One logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, puye!}

When it comes to breakfast around here, it's serious business.

As much as my family enjoys lunch and dinner, breakfast is probably the most highly-anticipated meal as both Big Sister E and Little Sister B wake up ready to fill their bellies with something that will provide enough energy to start off the day with a bang.

That's not to say that we have anything big or extravagant, but even just a great bowl of cereal can bring us together and get our bodies moving in the right direction. The recent addition to our cupboard lineup that has had a positive impact on the adults as well as the kids? Fiber One 80 Calories.

Fiber One 80 CaloriesHaving never tried Fiber One 80 Calories, I wondered right away if Big Sister E and Little Sister B would be okay with something new. They tend to be creatures of habit and although the cereals that they usually eat are healthy, introducing something new to the mix can often be hard to do.

Pouring a bowl of the crunchy wheat and corn puff squares for all of us, we each sat down to give this cereal a try.

what is fiberI have to admit that due to knowing that this cereal provides 40% of your Daily Value of fiber in one 80 calorie serving, I wasn't expecting much on the taste. It would have to have a flavor similar to cardboard, right?

Not at all! Yum! In fact these little squares have a light honey flavor that keep you going back for more... and with that much fiber, it was easy to have our hunger cravings satisfied and feel full for the rest of the morning. As I am always on the lookout for products that combine delicious taste, healthy ingredients, and are helpful in sticking with my weightFiber bars loss, this cereal was a hit for us all!

Along with more of their yummy products, Fiber One 80 Calories is available at your local grocery store now. Great information on healthy living (as well as money-saving coupons on new products) can be found at the Fiber One website and there is even a cute video out starring Hungry Girl (Lisa Lillien) that shares her excitement over Fiber One 80 Calories cereal.

How has your breakfast been lately? Could it use a fiber-filled pick-me-up? Thanks to the generosity of General Mills, one person will be ready to get moving and get healthy with Fiber One as well, because...

Yogurt, cereal, and berries. It's the best and everyone can add their own personal touch by switching up the kind of cereal and berries they use.
