A food maker in the region has produced a new snack designed to complement kids’ school lunches.
Battle Creek-based Kellogg said its Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain brand has rolled out Nutri-Grain Kids, a pack of bite-sized, soft-baked snacks designed to provide kids the nutrients they need at school.
“Kids are the toughest food critics around,” the company said. “They eat what they like and won’t what they don’t — especially at lunch. When school lunch bags come home with items untouched, it means kids didn’t get food they liked or fuel they needed for the day.”
Kellogg said it produced Nutri-Grain Kids to solve that issue. The snack contains eight vitamins and minerals, with eight grams of whole grains per serving, filling made with “real fruit and no high-fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors.”
Nutri-Grain Kids snacks are available in grocery stores nationwide in three flavors: awesome apple, strawberry blast and grapetastic, with a suggested retail price of $3.69 for a five-count box and $5.79 for a 10-count box.
