"Research shows that Americans struggle to find the time to eat a nutritious breakfast. They are looking for easy ways to fit this important meal into their hectic mornings," said Pamela Goldberg, Brand Manager at Kraft Foods. "We are thrilled to introduce Chocolate and Cinnamon Brown Sugar belVita Breakfast flavors into the morning routine just as families are getting ready for the busy back-to-school season."
Fueling Up For Back-to-School
According to a survey released by Kraft Food's belVita Breakfast fewer than half of all Americans eat breakfast every day, which can provide them with the nutrition they need to fuel their mornings. And though 61 percent of American adults believe breakfast to be the most important meal of the day, only 48 percent actually eat breakfast every morning. When enjoyed as part of a good breakfast, belVita Breakfast Biscuits are a convenient and nutritious option that can help students and parents alike get the energy their bodies need to start the day off right.
Grab Morning by the Biscuits
To help Americans power up in the morning, Kraft Foods worked with nutrition experts to create belVita Breakfast Biscuits that provide nutritious sustained energy for the whole morning. belVita Breakfast Biscuits are specially baked to release energy regularly and continuously to help fuel your body. Each individual package of four biscuits is portioned for breakfast, has 18-20g whole grains per serving and is a good source of fiber**. Additionally, belVita Breakfast Biscuits contain no high fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, and no artificial flavors or sweeteners. belVita Breakfast Biscuits can be enjoyed as part of a balanced breakfast with a piece of fruit and a serving of fat-free or low fat dairy – such as a banana and a yogurt.
While breakfast biscuits were only recently introduced to Americans, they have been enjoyed by Europeans for years. Kraft Foods introduced its first breakfast biscuits in France over a decade ago and now sells the belVita Breakfast biscuits platform in more than twenty countries.
