My kids are pretty open top trying new foods and even my dd who eats everything wouldn't go for the perky O's

My son didn't like the Perky-O's either. Thank goodness they were on sale for a bargain $4.99 :o down from $6.99 for a 263g box.

They seemed pretty bland. I suppose I'll try to convince him to eat them and I'll put gobs of brown sugar on them for encouragement. He used to live on Honey Nut Cheerios, so that's what we're looking for.

I tried them too, thought they were awful, it made me so mad to throw a whole box away, I paid almost 7 bucks :angry:

yeah the Perky O's were pretty yuck...

Have you seen the Glutino ones? I don't know if they meet all of your allergen free requirements, but might be worth checking out...

I actually add honey to the perky'os instead of sugar and my daughter likes them :) Have you tried that?

I used to eat 3 bowls of Cheerios a day, and I gave up after struggling through half a box of Perky-Os. No more for me, thanks. I think it was the salt that made Cheerios so good.

I have yet to find any Cheerio's or CAPT Crunch or Rice Krispies, or Corn Flakes substitue that I can tolerate. Don't know what's wrong with them, but they are awful. I've tried lots of substitutes and no joy.

So, I no longer eat cereal except for CAPT Crunch once in a great while (a bowl once in a while doesn't bother me, but everyday does). Lucky Charms is ok too, but I don't really like them that much - and same deal, once in a while is ok, but not often.

(That's MY sensitivity level - most others can't tolerate ANY amount of Capt Crunch or Lucky Charms).

Good luck, it is NOT easy. I wish Cocoa Puffs would be gluten-free again!

Have you tried any of the Envirokids cereal's?

I find them quite tasty. I know they are gluten free, but I cannot verify if they would meet the rest of your

dietary requirements.

I finally found Perky-Os and I only bought the Apple Cinnamon once, those are actually good. they are sweeter if you add sugar. Maybe you should try those?

I haven't tried them yet, but I heard the Glutino cereal that looks like cheerios is pretty close. I think they are called Cereal O's.

Gluteno has two ... Apple Cinnamon and Honey Nut, both are fairly good.

Having said that ... Perkyos has a lot more vitamins by far! And I find the Apple cinnamon one not bad.
