New Yummy Fibre 1 Almond & Cluster Delight Cereal & Free Coupons #Fibre1ACD

| June 4, 2013 | 6 Comments

 Fibre 1 Almond & Cluster Delight Cereal I accepted to blog about the Fibre 1 Almond & Cluster Delight Cereal to find out more about the importance of fibre in my diet.  By writing this article, I knew I would search on this topic and be more informed.  Was I ever surprised with the results!

Fibre is found in plant based food such as beans, fruits, vegetables, and grains like bran cereal, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, apples, oranges, figs, prunes, pears, apples, oranges, whole-grain pasta and bread, cooked brown rice, and oatmeal.  Fibre promotes regularity and prevents constipation.  As you can see, it’s important to incorporate high fibre food in our children’s diet as they will carry these healthy eating habits into adulthood, and have regular bowel movement.

Below is The American Academy of Pediatrics daily fiber intake recommendations for children two years and older:

Age

Amount of fibre per day (grams)

2-3 years

19

4-8 years

25

9-13 years

26-31*

14-19 years

26-38*

* For the ranges, the low end of the range is meant for females, and the high end is for males.

Did you know that to get the full health benefits of dietary fiber, adults should eat 25 to 35 grams of fiber each day? Most adults only eat around 11 grams! To make sure you eat enough fiber every day, you should choose high-fibre food like the Fibre 1 Almond & Cluster Delight Cereal as it has 10 grams of fibre per one cup. I was shocked to find out how low was the amount of  fibre in the cereals we eat for breakfast.

A change is in order! With one bowl of Fibre 1, I am getting 40% of  my daily recommended fibre intake, and if I add 1/2 cup of  blueberries or strawberries, that’s another 2 grams of fiber.  To add more fibre into you diet, you could also sprinkle Fibre 1 cereal on salads and in yogurt.

At first, I tried the flakes without milk. They are a light shade of brown and have a mild sticky coating on their exterior. They taste like bran, but with a slight sugary flavour. The flakes were crispy delicious with a nutty taste.  The clusters have a puffy and airy texture of rice and oats, and the almonds are thin and tasteful. I could eat this as a snack as much as for breakfast.  I added the milk and found it made the cereal taste sweeter, and embellish the nutty and almond flavour. I like the fact that it took at least 10 minutes for the cereal to be start getting soggy. No one likes mushy flakes!

  1. I haven’t tried it yet but I will definetely try it! It is hard to get the minimum daily quantity of fibre!

  2. WOW 40% now that is impressive!

  3. DeBalino says:

    I’m so glad to have read this. I know in general terms what we need as far as daily fibre intake, but you gave some great ideas – love the idea of sprinkling this in my salad or yoghurt. Never tried it – but I’ll add it to my grocery list!

  4. Jodi Shaw says:

    Okay I’ll admit it, I hate fibre. I know right. Hubby got me to try this though and it wasn’t so bad. It’s good for you and I think we are afraid to try things that are good for us. Which is why I love posts like to as they give encouragment to others (like me) who need a little push in the right direction >>> 🙂

  6. Shari G says:

    I am already a huge supporter of high fiber cereals! I suffer from IBS, so it is so important. I have tried fiber 1 before, and it is so tasty!
