Since I have quite a sweet tooth, one of my favourite cereals has always been Kellogs Frosties. As I've got older, I've tried to cut down the amount of Frosties that I do eat, because of the obvious sugar content. I have recently come across the Kellogs Reduced Sugar Frosties, and I have found it to be a Godsend.
Frosties are little flakes of corn, coated in a frosted sugar. The 750g box of Kellogs Reduced Sugar Frosties contains 25 x 30g servings. A typical 30g serving contains 170 calories (9% of your daily allowance), 14g (16%) of sugar, 2g (3%) of fat and 0.6g (10%) of salt.
Kellogs Reduced Sugar Frosties contain 1/3 less sugar than the original Frosties, and haven't included any extra additives, and more importantly, in my view, haven't lost anything in terms of taste. I actually believe that the reduced sugar Frosties taste better than the original.
The packaging for the reduced sugar Frosties is slightly different to the original. The cardboard box itself is slightly narrower and taller, and also comes in a light blue box as opposed to a darker blue. Tony the Tiger still remains on the reduced sugar box, proudly displaying his freshly made bowl of Frosties.
The reduced sugar Frosties also costs less than the original, which is a bonus, which means that they are healthier, cheaper, and in my opinion, nicer than Frosties original. Obviously the reduced sugar Frosties do still contain a lot of sugar, so they still aren't exactly healthy, but having less sugar, they certainly make me feel better about eating them.
Kellogg's Reduced Sugar Frosted Flakes aree even better than the ordinary Frosted Flakes. Frosted Flakes are a fantastic breakfast whgich provides you with energy to keep you going through the day. As an added bonus they have the mascot of Tony the Tiger who attracts kids to eating a healthy cereal for breakfast. The only down side to them is that they contain a lot of sugar which is why these reduced sugar flakes are so good.
Too much sugar can be very bad for you, here some of the things that it does to you:
~ Make children hyper and prevent them from concentrating
~ Cause depression
~ Decay your teeth
~ Cause headaches
~ Unbalance your hormones
~ Increase fluid retention, blood pressure and cholesterol
~ Cause speed the aging process
~ Contribute to weight gain and diabetes
~ Cause hypoglycaemia
I am by no means suggesting that you should cut sugar completely out of your diet, that would be just as dangerous but you should aim to stay within the recommended daily allowance and by doing small things such as eating reduced sugar cereal you can help that.
These taste just as great as normal Frosted Flakes if you want more information on them then please read my review about them. They are just as good but with less sugar which I think is a really good thing.
