Kraft Foods has developed belVita Breakfast Biscuits, a less sweet, crunchy cookie that mimics the breakfast biscuits often served in Europe. The company packages them in packs of 4 biscuits and suggests them as portable breakfast with a serving of dairy plus a fruit. They would go well with a box of milk or a container of yogurt and fresh fruit. Too few adults and children eat breakfast every day and though we’d love to see them eat a more traditional meal, this option is one that would work, too.
belVita has just added 2 new flavors to the line – Chocolate and Cinnamon Brown Sugar. A pack (1.8-ounce serving) of either flavor has 230 calories, 8 grams of fat (with a high proportion of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats), no cholesterol, 4 grams of protein, 35 grams of carb (3 grams of fiber and 10 grams of sugar for Chocolate and 11 grams for Cinnamon Brown Sugar), 220 milligrams of sodium (180 for Chocolate) and 90 milligrams of potassium (190 for Chocolate). The biscuits are kosher certified (OU).
Other flavors of belVita Breakfast Biscuits available at the grocery store include: Blueberry, Golden Oat, and Apple Cinnamon.
