Here at Nestlé Cereals we know we have a responsibility to those who eat our products; and whilst we’re proud of all of our brands, we’re always trying to make our cereals even better than they are today. That’s why some of our cereals, like Nesquik and Cookie Crisp, are now sources of both calcium and vitamin D – to help make them a great start to the day! So what’s all the fuss about Calcium & Vitamin D? These micronutrients are linked to the development of healthy bones and their long term maintenance. Kids: Both calcium & vitamin D support kids’ bone growth and development, with vitamin D also helping the absorption of calcium. It’s important kids get adequate amounts of both of these to help develop healthy bones. Adults: So here’s the bad news – at a certain stage in our lives (when we The good news is; the following Nestlé Cereals are a source of both calcium & vitamin D – each providing at least 15% of your RDA per serving!are about 30 years old) our bones stop getting stronger. They’re as tough as they’re ever naturally going to get! From that point on, the calcium & vitamin D we absorb goes towards the maintenance of our bones and helping keep them healthy and robust, just as important a role. Where do we get it? Calcium can come from lots of different foods, but when you combine the fortified nature of some of Nestlé’s cereals with the calcium inherent in the milk you often have with them, you’re on to a significant supply. Vitamin D on the other hand occurs in fewer foods, oily fish being one of them. Sunlight is another well-known supplier of vitamin D, but with few foods being a natural source and little sunlight in the UK, especially during winter, vitamin D fortified foods can play an important role in the vitamin D status of Brits.

Nesquik, Cookie Crisp, Golden Nuggets , Lion and Golden Grahams. Cheerios is one of the nation’s most loved family brands and each of the cereals under this banner – Cheerios, Honey Cheerios and Chocolatey Cheerios – are also a source of calcium.
