Review of Kix – a new healthy natural cereal

The General Mills Company sent me a box of their enhanced Kix Cereal to taste and review (full disclosure – I did not get paid for it), I was very excited to try something new as I am always eager to find new healthy products for myself and for you my readers. Boy have we been indulging ourselves this whole week with the Kix cereal. My 3 year old liked eating it, it is very convenient finger food.

This cereal tastes delicious. There are no artificial colors, no artificial flavors and no preservatives. The cereal is made with whole grain corn, and is an excellent source of iron and a good source of calcium, fiber, and vitamins C and D. My 3 year old has been loving this cereal. She calls them “crunchy” and in addition to eating it with milk, she loves to eat her “crunchy”’ plain as a snack or makes a trail mix using them with nuts, crackers, and dried fruits.

I must admit I love their taste too. It tastes fresh, there’s very little sugar and there is no “processed” after taste in my mouth”.  The best part of Kix is that it is part of a trend to back-to-basics cereal. In the words of the manufacturer,

“Original Kix and Honey Kix have no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, or no artificial preservatives.  The cereals are made with whole grain corn, and is an excellent source of iron and a good source of calcium, fiber, and vitamins C and D.”

This is an excellent move on the part of Kix. I looked at the box and it has only 3 grams of sugar per 30 gram serving, which is excellent for a cereal.

Another piece of great news is their survey shows 79 percent of parents eat breakfast with their children! That is awesome news because to me breakfast is the most important meals for the kids as it sets up them for success for the rest of the day.

I am an oatmeal person, but I wouldn’t mind having some Kix now and then to break the routine in our home for the family. So this cereal will find a corner in our home! Thank you General Mills for sending it my way.

Experience it for yourself! You will be pleased. Have you already tried it, please share your experience?


  1. Thank you for the useful post, I will certainly promote this to my family and friends. On a side note, I have a close friend that has been trying to gain weight but still wishes to sustain her healthy eating habits. Exactly what foods would you recommend?

    Hi Mildred — if you want to be healthy and still want to gain weight then you should eat food that are naturally high in calories but still good for you. ie. nuts, avocados, bananas etc.
