Sponsored video: some things don’t have to be too hard to digest

Have you seen the adorable commercial from Kellogg’s that says, “Some things, like how the baby ended up in your belly, are hard for kids to digest. But Rice Krispies® cereal is easy to digest. That's because it's made of rice, which moms know is gentle on little tummies.” If you haven’t, the video is below:
I had to share the video, because the mom’s expression is just priceless. The other commercials in the series are pretty entertaining, too. The message they’re trying to get across is that Rice Krispies is easy to digest because it contains rice. Rice is easy on tummies, which is why it’s one of the first solid foods we feed our babies.
However, I don’t want you to get the impression that Rice Krispies is a gluten free , rice-only cereal. Unfortunately, it also contains malt, which is not a gluten free food. This makes me sad, as Rice Krispies is one of my favorite cereals from childhood and I miss hearing the Snap, Crackle and Pop every morning.
However, that doesn’t mean that Kellogg’s Rice Krispies shouldn’t make mornings around your home a bit easier since it’s a quick and easy breakfast option for those who aren’t gluten free. You just add milk (or your favorite cow’s milk substitute like rice, almond, goat or coconut milk) and some slices of fruit, nuts, or flax seeds. For a touch of sweet, drizzle on some honey, agave nectar, or , and you have a healthy way to start your day. Each 1 1/4 cup serving contains 0 grams of fat, 130 calories, and 4 grams of sugar.
