You guys remember my cereal bar post from a couple of months ago? Well, a few weeks ago, I headed to NYC to attend the Kellogg’s #CerealandMilk Recharge Bar. This was basically THE CEREAL BAR TO END ALL CEREAL BARS.

Frosted Mini Wheats + cereal milk + raspberries + coffee grounds. This was delicious. Truly out of of this world. I ate 3 bowls of it. It was one of the favorites across the board. You should try it at home too! What’s cool is that these combos are very easy to do yourself at home. Even better is that these are all nutritious and healthy. One of the main takeaways…

I think that we forget that while cereal is convenient and affordable and delicious…it is also a very healthy option when done the right way.

Also in attendance was Dr. Travis Stork, who partnered with Kellogg’s to educate families on the importance of protein and whole grains.

Knowing that only 25 percent of Americans believe that cereal and milk has protein and only 20 percent4 actually think of cereal and milk when they hear “protein and grains,” Stork made it his mission to clear up any confusion. The K Champs got the chance to sit down and ask Dr. Stork some questions.

One of my favorite tips he offered was to remember what he calls “The Five Major Tenets of Health”

1. SIT Less. Move more!

2. Limit SUGAR intake.

3. Don’t skip on SLEEP. Sleep is important!

4. Manage your STRESS levels.

5. SOCIALIZE – don’t forget to spend quality time with friends, family and loved ones.

We finished off the event with a performance by none other than The Roots! How cool is that?! They performed several songs, including the “Cereal and Milk” jingle.
