Kellogg's Nutri-Grain package design

Nutri-Grain is a brand of breakfast cereal and breakfast bar made by the Kellogg Company.

In Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, Nutri-Grain is a breakfast cereal made from corn, oats, and wheat. The pieces are shaped like rectangles with three holes in them (Australia, New Zealand). The South African cereal consists of pieces made of three interconnected circles.

In the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland the Nutri-Grain Bar name is used for the soft breakfast bars. Each bar contains 8 grams of grains, equivalent to half a serving out of the three recommended servings a day.

History

The breakfast cereal in its original "block and hole" shape was introduced in Australia in 1976, and later in 1981 consisting of flakes without added sugar.[1] There were four varieties initially (rye, corn, barley, and wheat); later these were reduced to corn and wheat, and finally the corn line was completely discontinued. There are various Nutri-Grain Bars made from the breakfast cereal bonded together, available in the markets where the cereal is available. The bars became popular in the 1990s as an "on-the-go" food.

In 2013, Nutri-Grain breakfast drinks were added to the line of cereals for the Australian market.
