Mom’s Best Cereals: Healthier Versions of Your Childhood Favorites + Eco-Friendly Too!

On our way to our camping destination last weekend – we were chatting away when we realized that we forgotten to pack our go-to camping breakfast – cereal. Luckily, we happened to be passing a Target at the time – inside we headed for the natural and organic cereal section. I was immediately drawn to the the packaging of a brand that I had never heard of before, Mom’s Best Cereals.

After checking out the box, I asked the mister – how is it that I have never seen these before, the company has been around for ages? From what I could gather Mom’s Best Cereals makes healthier versions of the cereals from my childhood. You know, those cereals that always ran commercials during Saturday morning cartoons – the ones that are full of artificial colors, flavors and tons of sugar! This is absolutely NOT the case with Mom’s Best cereals. For example, when I picked up the Mallow Oats, I was surprised to find a healthier version (of that cereal with the Leprechaun) – here is what I saw:

  • free of artificial flavors or preservatives (instead they use blueberry, pumpkin and carrot)
  • no hydrogenated oils
  • no high fructose corn syrup
  • 14g of whole grain per serving
  • made with whole grain oats

So we picked up a box and headed on our merry way. We enjoyed our Mallow Oats with our organic Stonyfield yogurt and organic orange juice the next morning.  While Eben has never had this type of cereal before, he definitely approved and saved the marshmallows for last (just like I did as a kid!)

We don’t eat a lot of cereal in our house, however Mom’s Best will be on my radar when we do pick more up. I am looking forward to trying out the Honey Grahams and Blue PomWheat-Fuls. They also carry oatmeal – I definitely have to check that out!

Plus, Mom’s Best Cereals supports renewable energy development by purchasing wind energy credits to offset 100% of the electricity consumed by the production of their products. Their recycling and water reduction efforts help conserve natural resources and even their boxes are printed with vegetable-based inks on recycled paperboard.

The only thing that I would love to see in the future for Mom’s Best Cereals is the use of organic ingredients. 

Have you tried Mom’s Best Cereals?
Thoughts?

I was not compensated in any way for this post, I just bumped into an amazing new company with products that I enjoyed and thought you might be interested.
