The answer to should you eat breakfast is a resounding yes, of course. We’ve been advising that since we began the blog.
Adding a daily breakfast has been the biggest change in my eating habits over the past four or five years and I think it’s helped my overall health.
But a new survey by Kraft Foods recently found that less than half of all Americans eat breakfast.
Coincidentally, it has a new breakfast offering, belVita Breakfast Biscuits, which Kraft describes as “lightly sweet, whole grain crunchy breakfast biscuits, specially developed to provide nutritious sustained energy.”
The food industry is constantly searching for handheld products people can eat as they drive to work or around town, these biscuits sound like they fit that description.
Here’s the nutrition breakdown from the belVita Web site, I didn’t see mention of sodium or sugar however:
“Each individual package of 4 biscuits is portioned for part of a balanced breakfast. A 50 gram serving contains 18–20 grams of whole grain carbohydrates, 3 grams of dietary fiber, 3–4 grams of protein, and a good source of four B vitamins and iron. belVita Breakfast Biscuits also contain no high-fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils (zero grams of trans fat per labeled serving), and no artificial flavors or sweeteners.”
I will try these so I can report on them for our readers, stay tuned.
