Like their Power O’s, Love Grown Kids Cereals are powered by pulses: navy beans, lentils and garbanzo beans to be precise. And they are actually quite similar in both ingredients and nutrition, too. Where they differ is in flavors, shape and fun appeal.
I originally posted about Love Grown Kids Cereals when I won a box of the Blueberry Vanilla Polar Puffs. The Polar Puffs were recently discontinued, but Lion Hearts (formerly Lion Loops) have popped up in their place. So I’ve updated this post with the latest flavors and information.
Love Grown Kids Cereals are Healthier Options for Breakfast
Unlike the “treat” cereals of childhoods past, these have a gentle sweetness, rather than a sugary taste. They’re still reminiscent of special occasion breakfasts, but without the “I just ate candy” feeling afterward. And each bowl boasts a little more natural fiber and protein than your average kids cereal.

Not too sweet
This is a great option for families who already love this brand’s Power O’s cereals as the two are quite similar in sweetness, crunch and bean-y nutrition. The fun shapes take these up a notch for little ones, particularly if you are taking it slow on sugar introduction. If they’ve already got a penchant for Cap’n Crunch, it could be a slightly tougher transition.
