New York Times best-selling author, Emmy nominated TV personality and board-certified emergency medicine physician, Dr. Travis Stork, is partnering with Kellogg’s to educate families about the importance of breakfast and the positive nutrition they can get from a simple bowl of Kellogg’s cereal and milk.
Stork recommends families get protein in every meal as it’s essential to satisfying hunger and maintaining a healthy weight. “I am a big believer that breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” said Dr. Stork. “It’s not just whether you eat it, but what you eat, and having protein with whole grains during breakfast is a great option. Protein is an essential building block for the body and whole grains provide energy. Starting the day with a cereal and milk breakfast, like a bowl of Kellogg’s All-Bran and one cup of milk, is an easy and convenient way to get the day started right.”
Additionally, Stork notes the potential benefits of a cereal and milk breakfast:
- Whole grains help to efficiently refuel after the overnight fast, and protein helps retain and rebuild muscle mass that can be lost daily by the body.
- Cereal and milk is a leading source of 10 nutrients in people’s diets, making it a nutritious choice for the number of calories it provides.
- A serving of cereal, like Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats and one cup of skim milk can provide nutrients many people may not get enough of, including fiber, calcium, Vitamin D and potassium.
- The top three nutrition elements that people say they are looking for in their breakfast are fiber, whole grains and protein. A bowl of cereal and milk can be one the easiest ways to get all three of those elements and at only 50 cents a bowl.
“We are so excited to partner with Dr. Stork to spread the news that a bowl of Kellogg’s cereal and milk provides the protein and grains you need to start the day right,” said Noel Geoffroy, senior vice president, Marketing & Innovation for Kellogg U.S. Morning Foods. “He is a breakfast supporter and believes in the nutritious combination of cereal and milk.”
Dr. Stork will be working with Kellogg’s throughout the year, to educate families about the importance of starting the day with a nutritious breakfast to kick start your morning.
