We love to try new foods. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

Barbara’s Puffins Multigrain is the latest addition to the Puffins cereal group. This gluten-free, multi-grain cereal is made of corn, brown rice and whole oats, and is free of artificial flavors, preservatives and additives. The crunchy squares are slightly sweet and hold their shape and texture in milk.

One serving, ¾ cup (1 ounce), has 110 calories, no fat or cholesterol, 2 grams of protein, 25 grams of carb, 6 grams of sugar (which equals about 1 ½ teaspoons a serving), 3 grams of fiber, and 80 milligrams of sodium. It is kosher certified and provides 25% of your daily need for vitamin D. Not only is this a good cereal but it would make a great dry snack for toddlers and kids and could be the base for a snack mix with added dried fruits and nuts.
