Van’s Whole Grain Cereals

Screen Shot 2014-03-29 at 9.33.24 PMIt all started back in the 1970s at the original Van’s restaurant. It was there they first dished up whole grain and gluten free hot ’n toasty waffles. By the late 1980s, they decided it was time to bring our tasty waffles to a whole new group of customers – right in their local grocery stores.  Now, they have expanded into other foods like breakfast cereals!

You can easily start the day out right with a full serving of whole grains and 5 grams of fiber per serving.  You can get both Honey Nut Crunch and Cinnamon Heaven as flavors.  These are made with nutrient rich whole grains including gluten free oats, brown rice, millet, quiona, and amaranth.  These cereals give you a tasty and satisfying crunch without using dairy, egg, corn, high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients, hydrogenated oils, or GMO oils.

We recently tried the Cinnamon Flavor.  It tastes awesome!  You would never guess that this doesn’t have the ingredients that most of the cereals in the cereal aisle do.  My kids have asked to eat this every day for breakfast for a week now!  It definitely was a hit in my house.

I can only recommend Van’s!

MilkBite Milk and Granola Bars

We get to review lots of different things here. However, sometimes we come across the a product that everyone in my house likes (which is few and far between). MilkBites is one of those products. My husband even told me to get more of them! That never happens!!

MilkBite is a snack bar that combines real milk with whole grain granola. It provides the same amount of calcium as a 8 oz glass of milk. For someone who is lactose intolerant like me, that is beyond awesome! They also include 5 grams of protein, 7 grams of whole grains, and is a good source of vitamin D and fuber. There are no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, color, or preservatives. MilkBites are available in chocolate, strawberry, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, and mixed berry and are available at your local grocery stores for $3.49 a box.

MilkBites are a great snack morning, noon, or night! We loved them and you will too!
