The other day Nina and Rex got a little delivery from the guys at Jungle. They sent them not one, but three boxes of their Crunchalots cereals. Now, to be completely honest with you guys my kids don’t really eat cereal, I don’t like the idea of a bowl full of sugar-coated ﬂuff that does nothing other than hype them up for the morning! That’s why I was interested in trying out this particular cereal because it’s made speciﬁcally with kids and parents in mind.
Now I’m not the kind of mom who doesn’t allow their kids any sugar, but I do like to try to make an effort where I can to limit the intake of it. So I do appreciate it when products like this, which I know my kids will enjoy because of the taste, have made an effort to increase the nutritional value and decrease the sugar levels because they understand that we need the help sometimes 🙂
So I sat down with Neens and Rex and we tried each ﬂavour out one at a time. Now yes, Jungle Crunchalots are colourful and ﬂavoursome, which won the kids over in a heartbeat, but what I appreciated is the fact that they contain 32% less sugar* than their rivals! Which is a lot. Not only that, but they’re high in ﬁbre too which helps with digestion. They’re also high in Vitamin A and C which aids the immune system and they’re high in B Vitamins for energy.
Now all of this kind of important information makes me really happy, but I can tell you for free it didn’t make an ounce of difference to either one of my kids haha! All they cared about is the fact that they tasted really good!
Like I said, we gave each ﬂavour a bash from the Chocolate to the
Strawberry to the Honey and the overall verdict was that they liked every one, a lot, but not as much as when they were all mixed in the same bowl together. Nina dubbed that particular ﬂavour Crazygood – it was my favourite too!
What was also awesome about this cereal is it didn’t go super soggy in the milk after a short period of time, I don’t like it when that happens. What it does do, which I’m a fan of is ﬂavour the milk a bit so it’s almost like you’re getting a double treat. These guys are also pretty yummy just
as a snack, a handful here and there.
Thanks Jungle Crunchalots for the awesome treats,
everyone is really excited to wake up in the morning to have a bowl.
