💭 Expert Tips from Dietitian Summer Yule

This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). Are Fruity Pebbles healthy? Fruity Pebbles are loaded with sugar and food coloring, and are probably best thought of as a treat than a nutritious meal.
That said, sugar cereals can help those who have trouble eating get enough vitamins, minerals, and calories. They also tend to be inexpensive, and can help increase nutrient intake in those with food insecurity. For example, Fruity Pebbles are fortified with an assortment of B vitamins, iron, and vitamin D.
This simple recipe moves this sugary cereal from breakfast meal to the dessert plate. It has pretty colors which would be fun at kids’ parties, and it’s sweet and delicious. We were surprised by how good these were- the recipe really works!
If you want healthier cereal options that are lower in sugar, check out the WIC-approved cereal list (US). Those cereals are better options for breakfast, while cereals like Fruity Pebbles are better as a fun occasional treat.
