    Thumbs up Great Alternative to Cheerios

    I found a great alternative to Cheerios!!

    It is an Estonian breakfast cereal called Kamapallid (or Kama balls)
    They are small air puffed balls made from a traditional Estonian flour, kama, that is often eaten with yogurt or kefir.

    These puffs are the perfect size for little fingers, dissolve faster than Cheerios, and contain no added sugar.
    Ingredients:
    Kama flour (rye, wheat, barley, pea), salt.
    100g of the cereal contains:
    energy 1315 kJ/ 310kcal, protein 12.3g, fat 2.5g, carbs 59,6g, sodium 0.005g

    Kiira just loves them, and honestly I think they are great with milk as well!

    The drawback obviously, is that they are not sold in the US.

    I get my mom to send them to me from Estonia, but if anyone is interested, I am planning on ordering a larger quantity from the company.

    Kashi also makes a great puffed cereal that's great for little fingers to pick up. It is only their 7 whole grains, puffed. No sugar, salt, preservatives or anything else. My little guy loves them and they're sold in the US. I find them at my Target Greatland.

    Ah, the Kashi cereal is something different- it is individual grains that are puffed, right?

    The Kama puffs are little balls of this flour that are puffed- they look a little like the dry dog food our dogs eat
    I have not seen anything like it in the US.
    Since they are made from ground up grains they dissolve super fast.

    I think I will set it up as a co-op- what do you guys think?

    Who's in?

    Each bag will cost about $1.50 before shipping (shipping will not be much- they are very light!)
    I'll be figuring out the details soon.
