I always feel REALLY boring when I do these breakdowns lol. I don’t want to ruin the FuN of food trends but when something has an undertone of fear-mongering, I usually feel it deserves a bit of some airtime on my feed.⠀
⁠⠀⁠⠀
Meet ‘Nature’s Cereal’ – tiktok new favourite trend.⠀
⁠⠀⁠⠀
It looks v cute and aesthetic. Guaranteed triple-figure likes.⠀
⁠⠀⁠⠀
Rather than it being pitched as a new 💫quirky💫 snack, I’m seeing it being reshared as a better, healthier, ‘more natural’ version of cereal.⠀
⁠⠀⁠⠀
Basically, diet culture has got it’s claws into it and I don’t like.⠀
⁠⠀⁠⠀
The issue is – Cereal and ‘Nature’s Cereal’ sound pretty interchangeable, right?
Cereal and ‘fruit in a bowl of coconut water’, not so much.⠀
⁠⠀⁠⠀
The latter is the reality of this trend.
They are two *very* different things. ⠀
⁠⠀⁠⠀
Cereal is great.
Fruit is great.
Coconut water is great.⠀
⁠⠀⁠⠀
And if you love it, fruit in coconut water is great. But eating it only because someone on tiktok told you it’s a ‘better’ alternative to cereal? Not so great. Do not fear cereal !⠀
⁠⠀⁠⠀
Like all food trends, these things have to feel eDgY in order for them to be viral, we get that. But is just a very low calorie, unblended smoothie – at best.⠀
⁠⠀⁠⠀
As always, eat what the f you want.
But it’s also good to bare this shit in mind when scrolling ‼️❤️
