Quaker Life Cereal (Original) Review

Quaker Life CerealKids' cereals are notorious for being all sugar and little nutrition. However, Quaker Life Cereal is a classic kids' cereal that's yummy yet not laden with calories and sugar. Even though there are happy kids on the box, this cereal is tasty and nutritious enough for happy grown-ups too.

Life Cereal has a nice crunch with a mild sweetness and holds milk well. The box emphasizes that this cereal is made with whole grain Quaker oats, which promotes good heart health, and sure enough, the first ingredient is whole grain oat flour, not sugar. It is just simply delicious.

Each 3/4 cup serving of Quaker Life Cereal provides 120 calories and 1.5 grams of fat, none of which is saturated, 160 milligrams of sodium (7% if the daily value), 3 grams of protein and 25 grams of carbohydrates, which includes 2 grams of dietary fiber and 6 grams of sugars. In addition the cereal provides a variety of B vitamins and other minerals like calcium and iron. This cereal is also endorsed by the American Heart Association.

I paid $2.99 for a 15 ounce box and I really like this cereal for its simple goodness. The other flavors are not bad either. Check out the reviews of the Honey Graham (which looks like it has been discontinued) and Cinnamon. Another Quaker cereal which we adore is Quaker Golden Maple Oatmeal Squares ... abd the Brown Sugar variety. Okay - Quaker, we're going to stop gushin now.
