Not So Fun Facts About Fiber

Fiber & Whole Grains

Fiber is a super nutrient and a diet high in fiber can help support the all-around wellbeing of your family.  Yet, in spite of the strong evidence of the benefits of fiber, fewer than 9 out of 10 of us do not get enough fiber. 

But what, exactly, is enough? 

According to the Institute of Medicine, daily fiber recommendations are based on gender and age.  And while at first glance these recommendations would seem simple to achieve, the truth is that most of us fall well short of these healthful goals.  That means we’re losing out on all of fiber’s benefits.   

To help address this shortfall, Kellogg offers more than 30 cereals that are a good or excellent source of fiber.  And, we make it delicious!

But a great-tasting Kellogg’s cereal with fiber is just the start. So to help you make the most of every meal, our Fiber Trackerext-link lets you develop informed choices about the foods you eat — giving you the knowledge you need to transform a good morning into a great day.
