Children who go to school without breakfast have more trouble concentrating. Regular breakfast eaters also have better diets and generally better health. Nutritionists recommend that a good breakfast should supply about one qumier to a third of a person's daily nutritional needs. A bowl of breakfast cereal with milk helps do just that, by providing a range of nutrients such as carbohydrates, fibre, and essential vitamins and minerals.

K-Time has shown tremendous growth over the past year growing significantly ahead of the market at 47.3 per cent versus market growth of I 0 per cent.

This makes Kellogg's Nutri-Grain one of the fastest growing brands in the category. PROMOTION A man ahead ofhis time, WK. Kellogg realised that promotion was vital to growing his brand. In 1906, he invested in an ad in The Ladies Home Joumal with astounding results. Sales grew from just 33 cases a day to 2,900. Spurred on by this success, WK Kellogg embarked on a series of sales promotions. Kellogg was also one of the first companies to use free gifts or premiums in or on-pack.

One of those products, Kellogg's Corn Flakes, has enjoyed a long history of popularity based on its taste and high nutritional value. Driven by the belief that cereals can provide an integral part of our diet, Kellogg's Corn Flakes continue to win over the hearts and minds of today's increasingly health-conscious consw11ers. A key reason is Kellogg's corporate culture.
