Kellogg's Partners with Dr. Travis Stork
Dr. Travis Stork, is partnering with Kellogg's(R) to educate families about the importance of breakfast and the positive nutrition they can get from a simple bowl of Kellogg's cereal and milk. Stork recommends families get protein in every meal as it's essential to satisfying hunger and maintaining a healthy weight. "I am a big believer that breakfast is the most important meal of the day," said Dr. Stork. "It's not just whether you eat it, but what you eat, and having protein with whole grains during breakfast is a great option. Protein is an essential building block for the body and whole grains provide energy. Starting the day with a cereal and milk breakfast, like a bowl of Kellogg's All-Bran(R) and one cup of milk, is an easy and convenient way to get the day started right."
