Kashi is also expanding its lineup of steam meals with two new convenient and nourishing offerings when a from-scratch meal is not an option. Three Cheese Ravioli Steam Meal features Kashi 7 Whole Grain Pasta filled with a creamy blend of ricotta, asiago and mozzarella cheeses, combined with spinach, basil and red peppers, as well as chickpea puree. Topped with a zesty garlic basil Mediterranean tomato sauce, it delivers 5g of fiber, 23g of whole grains and 13g of protein per serving.

Designed for those times when sitting down for a traditional waffles and syrup breakfast isn’t convenient, the new Chocolatey Chip Muffin flavor joins other popular flavors already in the lineup.
