Very recently Richard Paterson was kind enough to send me a couple of boxes of Keep Me Going, a cereal developed after noticing how much sugar and salt were in cereals (especially children’s cereals). Two years of development later, the first cereals in the Keep Me range are ready for eating.
I love my breakfast and I love my cereal and I am always on the lookout for the healthiest option.
This is what Richard told me about Keep Me Going:
Compared to Special K Original (often advertised as a healthy cereal), Keep Me Going has 8 times less salt; 60% less sugar; twice the fibre; and a low Gi, similar to traditionally made porridge (instant porridge has a high Gi). The Gi testing was conducted by Hammersmith Hospital and involved around a dozen volunteers having their blood-sugar levels checked at regular intervals after eating the cereal over a two week period.
I really liked Keep Me Going. I am a porridge kind of girl but I loved mixing the two together. I added seeds and berries, as well as almond milk (also used soya mil at times) and always liked the end taste. I love how healthy the cereal is and how low in salt and sugar.
Keep Me Going is available on Ocado and Richard has plans to take it to some of the major supermarkets so fingers crossed it should be stocked in more places than Ocado soon! Also, brilliantly Keep Me Strong (high protein, low salt, reduced sugar) is being launched in a few months. I will definitely be trying that when I can.
I was given Keep Me Going for free. My review is definitely my own and neither it nor my opinions haven’t been swayed by the free food swag.
