As I told you in a recent blogpost (here) about the Breakfast Week Challenge, one in three mums skip breakfast on a regular basis and I have to guiltily admit to being one of them. I know I should eat something healthy to start the day and have even ingrained the cereal/fruit/dairy product mantra in the kids when they're choosing breakfast, but by the time I've got everyone else sorted out, I rarely have time to sort anything out for myself ! I therefore jumped at the chance when we were given the opportunity of trying out Belvita Breakfast Yogurt Crunch because they're perfect for grabbing on my way out of the door to eat at the bus stop !
Specially designed for breakfast, the Belvita Breakfast Yogurt Crunch consists of two crunchy Breakfast Biscuits sandwiched together by a creamy live yogurt filling - it reminds me of a big custard cream !
It's a much healthier option though because it contains five wholegrains, is rich in cereals, provides a source of fibre and calcium and contains a selection of vitamins and minerals including vitamin E, thiamin, niacin, calcium, magnesium and iron.
Rahul Gursahani, Senior Brand Manager at Kraft Foods, says that the Belvita Breakfast range has been years in development in order to maximise its nutritional benefits and Yogurt Crunch is the latest variant from their team of experts. "The creamy filling is made from live yogurt and is the first of its kind in this category. We are all very proud of the result and this will hopefully continue to increase the current appetite for breakfast biscuits in the UK," comments Rahul Gursahani.
As with all Belvita Breakfast Biscuits, when eaten as part of a balanced breakfast, Belvita Breakfast Yogurt Crunch is clinically proven to regularly and continuously release carbohydrates over four hours to keep you going all morning. Well, I ate two this morning before going to work and I didn't feel at all hungry until lunchtime, avoiding the mid-morning munchies when you often reach for something unhealthy from the nearest vending machine.
Taste-wise, they're very nice too. The biscuits are crumbly and not overly sweet and the filling is creamy and delicious, actually reminding me of custard cream filling more than yogurt ! It's a tasty and ultra-convenient way of getting something healthy into your tummy when you've no time to spare and the fact that they're wrapped in handy 2-biscuit sachets makes them ideal for breakfast on the go.
I wasn't sure what the Madhouse Mini-Testers would think of them as they're not as sweet as many kid-oriented options, but the girls loved them and asked if they could have them for breakfast again tomorrow !
The Belvita Breakfast Yogurt Crunch is available in supermarkets and leading retailers now and comes in a 253g box containing five sachets of two biscuits. It complements the other Belvita Breakfast Biscuits already brightening up mornings, including Honey & Nuts with choc chips, Crunchy Oats, Milk & Cereal and Fruit & Fibre.
