Heart Health Month w/ Kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters & Flakes Cereal


February is the month associated with hearts. It's not just for Valentine's Day though. February is also Heart Health Month . Did you know that? 

 Kashi has introduced the newest addition to its family of natural foods! Continuing on its mission to provide great tasting, nutritious and innovative foods, the brand is introducing Kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters & Flakes cereal. 

Made with the perfect blend of natural ingredients, including whole grain oat clusters and sun-ripened blueberries, this cereal has a lot to love. Not only does it taste great, but each 1 cup serving of Kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters & Flakes offers 45 percent of the daily amount of fibre shown to help lower cholesterol – just in time for Heart Health Month . With 6 grams of protein per cup, the cereal is free of trans fats, low in saturated fat and has no artificial flavours or colours.
Since Heart Health is something on our minds these days, especially with a family history of heart issues, high cholesterol, and other health issues, I've been focusing on heath and exercise. I've also been making a conscious effort to make sure my family eats well and that we get our recommended fibre intake.

Kashi gave us the opportunity to try their Kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters & Flakes cereal.

You know how we're always told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? We all  know this, but do we all remember to have a good breakfast every morning? I try, but usually my mornings are so rushed with trying to get Little One washed up, dressed, fed, and out the door so we can trek all the way to her bus stop. I often occasionally forget to eat something for my own breakfast. When I get in I grab an apple or a yogurt...if I remember.

I don't know how I have time to make oatmeal (with steel cut oats) for Little One, but not enough time to have anything myself. Now that we are trying Kashi's new cereal, Little One and I both have a bowl of cereal together.

I have to say that I loved it because I know that fibre is shown to help lower cholesterol, but Little One loved it for the taste! Everyone in the family is happy with Kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters & Flakes.

Little One has been asking for it for breakfast every morning!
