Minneapolis-based General Mills introduces Dora the Explorer Cereal, based on the popular animated Nick Jr. television series for kids. Dora is an adventurous bilingual Latina heroine, and General Mills licensed her because the character embodies and communicates many educational attributes.
Kids will adore the new star-shaped cereal, which combines a corn crunch with the flavor of cinnamon for a kid-friendly taste. And with only 6g of sugar and a good source of fiber (3g per serving), calcium and whole grain (at least 8g per serving), the cereal will have quite a few grown-up fans as well.
"Parents love Dora because her play-along adventures encourage kids to think, solve problems and make smart choices," explains Sherice Torres, vice president-hard goods for Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products. "We hope parents will be excited Dora the Explorer can also provide their kids with a smart breakfast choice that gives them energy for all their adventures."
Suggested retail price is $3.49.
