We’re hugs fans of the Bear nibbles snacks and spotted they have a new cereal, Alphabites. We jumped at the chance to try it and I tracked some boxes down in my local Waitrose!
Alphabites are letter shaped cereal pieces. They’re vegetarian, in fact, vegan-friendly with no added sugar and also no added salt. They’re high in fibre and low GI, as well as containing one of your everyday wholegrain portions.
I like that breakfast time has become something we’ll sit and talk about letters. H is a big fan of cereals and these have been a big hit with her, especially when she spots any letters from her name. She’s making words in her food which in is complementing the work she’s doing at school. Educational food, anyone?
The Alphabites letters stay in their shape really well too, no mushing up as the milk soaks in, though we found the ones at the bottom of the pack are a little crumblier than the top – so give your box a good shake!
In addition there are activites on the back of the pack relating to letters (S for space, P for pirates, I for insects, for example) with the whole alphabet set to roll out over the next twelve months, if you’re like us and collect the cards from inside the yo yo snacks, imagine that on a bigger scale!
Alphabites come in two flavours – Multigrain and Cocoa Multigrain – both are made with six natural ingredients. They’re available from Waitrose, Ocado, Wholefoods, Holland and Barrett, Planet Organic and lots of other places.
We were sent two boxes for the purpose of review – they’re already a big hit in our house, and I’ve found them to be filling as all good low-GI wholegrain foods should be, keeping me from feeling too hungry by lunchtime.
