5 Star Heath Rating
We all know how important it is to eat a good brekkie, especially for our active kids. Sure, I may survive on coffee and toast crust the kids don’t wanna eat, but I always send them off with some semblance of a healthy breakfast.
Weet-Bix™ Little Kid’s Essentials is a uniquely formulated breakfast cereal recommended by 9 out of 10 kids’ dietitians*. It comes with a five star health rating and is packed full of nutritional goodness including nine essential vitamins and minerals:
- Calcium for strong bones, teeth and muscle
- Vitamin B1, magnesium and iron for brain and cognitive function
- Folate and zinc for strong natural immune defences
- Vitamin B2, B3 and B6 for energy to grow, learn and play
- Fibre for digestive and tummy regularity
- Low in sugar and no added salt
Enjoy as part of a balanced diet.
FUN FACT: The new Weet-Bix is specially designed for little kids and made with a variety of wholegrains and essential vitamins and minerals that young children need to grow and support their immune system.
Designed by us, developed by dietitians
What’s especially cool about the new Weet-Bix™ Little Kid’s Essentials is that it’s actually the product of parents. Sanitarium canvassed 1,200 new parents to better understand their biggest concerns about their child’s diet and overall health. Their input helped build this breakfast cereal that ticks the boxes for toddlers and preschoolers.
FUN FACT: As well as essential nutrients for growth and development, just one serve provides 25% of a young child’s fibre needs.
How do you have your Weet-Bix?
Nutritional awesomeness aside, what makes Weet-Bix a family staple is how easy it is to prepare and eat. Children love the stuff and there are so many ways to dish it up, not just for brekkie either.
Throw them in a bowl, add milk and some fruit, and, voila! Healthy brekkie sorted in under a minute.
