Special K® Teams Up With Cooking Host And YouTube Star Laura Vitale To Help Women Up Their Nutrient Game

Kellogg’s® survey finds that the majority of women agree eating nutrient-rich foods makes them feel good, yet 76 percent think it can be confusing to determine what nutrients they need and how to get them

Kellogg Company Special K LogoAmid shifting health-and-food trends, one detail remains constant – the essential role nutrients play in helping us feel our best. Although their importance is undeniable, how to get them and in what amounts often is less clear.

In a new survey of women ages 18-34, Special K set out to get to the bottom of this confusion, finding the majority agree that eating nutrient-rich foods makes them feel good physically (84 percent) and mentally (78 percent), yet 76 percent think it can be confusing to determine what nutrients they need, in what amounts and what foods they should eat to get them.

Special K believes that the key to feeling good – and ultimately feeling special – is eating good food that is good for you. In partnership with cooking host and YouTube star Laura Vitale, they are helping women eat special to feel special, shedding light on the vital nutrients women want – fiber, whole grains, folic acid and vitamin D, among others – and showing how easy it can be to get them by adding simple food “swap-ins” throughout the day, like a bowl of Special K Red Berries and milk at breakfast.
