New Brand of Cookies Helps Make Treat Time a Nutrition-Rich Occasion
DENVER, May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Who knew delicious could be so nutritious? That's what Moms across the country are exclaiming since the recent launch of WhoNu? nutrition rich cookies, a new brand of cookies packed with 20 essential vitamins and minerals, plus dietary fiber, created to look and taste like familiar family favorites.
WhoNu? is the only cookie brand on the market that delivers 3 grams of fiber and 20 percent or more of the daily allowance of calcium, vitamin D, vitamin C, iron, vitamin E, vitamin B12, and vitamin A in each 3 cookie serving, helping to make treat time a nutrition-rich occasion.
"Children are snacking more than ever and they're snacking on nutrient-deficient foods with empty calories," said Mike Bloom, vice president of marketing for Suncore Products, LLC. "In fact, cookies remain the number one snack item for kids ages 5 through 12, contributing to the more than $5 billion spent on prepackaged cookies each year in the U.S. WhoNu? brand cookies provide an alternative to other indulgent, nutrition-poor treats on the market, offering kids a great-tasting way to fuel development and supplement other healthy eating habits."
While each serving of WhoNu? cookies is packed with nutrition levels that rival some of the healthiest foods, including as much fiber as a bowl of oatmeal, as much calcium and vitamin D as an 8 oz. glass of milk, and as much vitamin C as a cup of blueberries, they are not intended to replace vitamins, supplements or other healthy eating habits, including the consumption of fruits and vegetables. WhoNu? cookies are simply a better option when choosing cookies as a treat.
WhoNu? cookies are available in four kid-familiar forms and flavors: Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip, Crispy Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Sandwich Creme and Vanilla Sandwich Creme. Beginning in July 2011, WhoNu? cookie varieties will be available at major retailers nationwide, including Wal-Mart. Suggested retail price is $2.99-$3.49, but may vary by retailer.
