From the classic, bright yellow box to a sweet, seasonal offering, Cheerios have and will continue to be a staple in many people’s households. With the newest offering, Cheerios Veggie Blends, the iconic cereal opens a new chapter in its history and people are excited to experience that first bowl.

Over the years, cereal has evolved from a simple bowl of grains. In addition to creative flavor combinations, pop culture connections, and food trends, companies have found ways to put nutritional conversations front and center on that shelf.

While there have been innovations in grain type, fiber content, and other ingredient swaps, the Cheerios Veggie Blends take a new direction, putting vegetables into any and every meal.

Each serving of this cereal contains ¼ cup of fruit and vegetables. According to the brand, the blend includes spinach, carrot, and sweet potato.

While Cheerios has had many fruit infused options, blending vegetables in with the grains is a logical extension. These particular vegetables can easily meld with sweet fruit flavors. No one will get a bowl of spinach-Os. Each spoonful will taste like the classic Cheerios that people expect, just with an added ingredient boost.

The new Cheerios Veggie Blends come in two flavors, Apple Strawberry and Blueberry Banana. The cereal is available now, only at Walmart.
