As families are now back to their routines, an easy breakfast option is Kix, with eight ingredients plus vitamins and minerals. The “Kid Tested Mother-Approved” cereal has no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, or no artificial preservatives and is the same great taste kids have loved for more than 70 years.
According to a recent Kix survey 79 percent of parents eat breakfast with their children, and the majority (96 percent) agree it’s essential to pass along healthy habits and good nutrition. Cereal is one of the healthiest breakfast choices parents can make and it’s an easy option for families on-the-go.
In fact, research shows kids who eat breakfast tend to perform better in school and have fewer disciplinary problems; breakfast also tends to help kids stay alert.
The Kix survey highlights parents’ discoveries and experiences as they search for simple and nutritional solutions for their families, including:
- Start the day on the right foot: As busy as today’s parent is, it is no surprise many parents turn to cereal with milk (84 percent) to serve a quick and nutritious breakfast. Other popular choices include fruit (82 percent) and eggs (80 percent).
- Breakfast with a smile: Parents find simplicity and positive role modeling helpful in encouraging children to eat healthy breakfasts.
- Eighty-one percent encourage healthy eating by giving children uncomplicated foods that are nutritious and taste good.
- Seventy-nine percent eat breakfast with their children. Younger parents, ages 18-34, are most likely to eat breakfast with their children (85 percent).
- Savvy Secrets: Survey findings reveal two-thirds of parents (63 percent) admit to secretly adding healthy ingredients to their children’s meals as a way to help even finicky eaters get the nutrients they need. Moms (70 percent) are more likely to add a secret ingredient than dads (55 percent).
