Who remembers that last year I reviewed a new breakfast cereal called Keep Me Going? Well the Keep Me brand has now come up with another new product and they have sent me a free box to try. This one is called Keep Me Strong.
Since trying Keep Me Going last year, I’ve attempted to eat more healthily at breakfast. I’ve been keeping an eye out for when the Keep Me range hits local supermarket shelves, but as yet it is still only stocked by Ocado. I do still sometimes treat myself to a less healthy cereal, but my two main alternatives are now oats or weetabix. For the oats, I either prepare a yoghurt and oatmeal dish the night before or make porridge served with banana or pear. You may see one of my oatmeal recipes here.
Like last time, we all tried it out and I got much more favourable responses from the boys to this variety. They both really enjoyed it. In comparison, son2 wasn’t that keen on Keep Me Going last year. Even my other half, who normally adds extra sugar to his cereal, was reasonably positive. However, son1 with his photographic memory was disappointed that there were no trading cards in the box this time.
Keep Me Strong (like Keep Me Going) is low sugar and salt and available at Ocado. It is usually priced at £2.65 for a 330g box, but is currently on special offer at 25% off (so £1.99) for the rest of June.
There are other high protein cereals out there, but nearly all use wheat gluten as their protein source, whereas Keep Me Strong uses brown rice protein, which is more easily digested and absorbed. The box indicates that a 30g serving (excluding the milk) provides about the same protein as a medium sized egg.
I enjoyed this cereal and recommend that you give it a try. I’m hoping that it will soon become available in more stores than just Ocado.
And I’m hosting a rafflecopter competition to giveaway 2 boxes of Keep Me Strong cereal each courtesy of Keep Me to 2 lucky winners.
