Default WhoNu cookies?

So i just saw a commercial for WhoNu cookies. Apparently they have "As much fiber as a bowl of oatmeal, As much Calcium and vitamin D as an 8 oz glass or milk* Per 3 cookie serving" and so forth. I went on the website, They look good. From what i hear they taste good to. I personally don't believe you could replace it for oatmeal for breakfast. I'll buy them sometime this week i have a $1 off coupon
What do you think? Would you buy it and eat only IT for breakfast?

Think of it like this. They took a cookie and added a fiber supplement and a few vitamin supplements. So would you eat 3 cookies and a handful of supplements for breakfast?

That's what got me here weight wise, lol.

But depending on the calorie count I might have them for lunch once in a while.

I bought them for my children. They aren't nearly as tasty as a bowl of oatmeal I CAN tell you that!!!

Besides--super high high in calories! No way would I eat them for breakfast. If I did I would probably way overeat all day.

I can see replacing these cookies for normal cookies, especially if your kids are stubborn and won't eat anything that looks healthy. what is the calorie content on these anyway?

I've found that my juicer helps me get healthy stuff like apples, and carrots to be more appealing to my step daughter...she won't eat an actual carrot, but juice it with an apple or some grapes and she's eager to drink it.


edited to add..looks like Chips Ahoy sandwich cookies are 150 calories for 2 while whonu cookies are 160 for three...so for 10 more calories, you can have an extra cookie. It would wreak your sugar intake for the rest of the day though.

I buy them as their treat for school lunches. I usually send two though.

Oh, another thing too I have found where carrots are concerned. I have been putting them through my food processor and then putting them into homemade pancakes and waffles. My kids love them!

I don't usually have to hide stuff anymore--they are almost 8 and 10 and eat pretty healthily.
