Froot Loops Cereal Straws

If you just got done reading diet pill reviews, this is not a review you want to read. This doesn't fall under anything I personally would eat on diet. However, getting my 4 year old to drink milk is like pulling teeth, so anything that makes her want to drink is a good thing.  When I saw these (and the coupon I found helped too), I thought this may be exactly what I was looking for.  The straw is about 6 inches long.  It has a crunchy cereal shell on the outside and a fruity flavor lining.  Madison (my four year old) loves them!  It has gotten her to drink more milk.  Would I buy these again?  Probably not.  There were two things that I wasn't exactly pleased about.  First, once you open the packaging there is no way to keep the other straws fresh.  The second problem is why I probably won't buy them again, and that is that I'd say 3/4 of the straws were broken.  You can still use them as a straw, but when you have a 2-3 inch straw, it is kinda useless.  If Kellogg's can solve their packaging issue with this, I will definitely buy these again!

  1. I had the same issues, we had only two whole straws in the entire thing. And when I look at the tray, it really doesn't seem like they should have even thought that it was a good idea, let alone went live with that packaging design.

    And whatever is in the frosting inside of the straw is oily enough that it just ruins the "crunch" of the straw. I admit, i didn't spend much time looking at the ingredient list, I bought these more as a treat than as a breakfast item. I do know that I checked to see if they were vegetarian or not first lol

    Does your daughter eat yogurt or cheeses? Maybe you don't need to worry so much about her drinking the milk (and I bet the sugar content in the frosted inner part negates a good share of milk's benefits). If she can get her vitamin D and calcium another way, no worries 🙂

  2. Considering that most of the world's population doesn't consume milk regularly (or even tolerate it), perhaps you can seek an alternative method for introducing calcium and D into her diet (as the commenter above mentioned). Personally, I like yogurt and cheese, but I never took a liking for milk, despite growing up with cows literally in my backyard.

    Fact is, the idea that milk is somehow essential to one's health, and especially for a child's development, is a giant myth created by the dairy industry. Just look at the Japanese. They don't have the farmland to sustain a dairy industry, and milk certainly isn't a part of their traditional diet, yet their life expectancy and health is near the top of the list.
