The company also promised to reduce salt in children’s cereals by 20 percent as part of a ten-year plan to make its products healthier. The move means the company’s children's breakfast cereals would no longer be high in fat, salt, and sugar (HFSS) by the end of 2022. Kellogg’s also plans to reduce the sugar in its young adult-focused Krave cereal by an average of 11 percent across the different flavors. Special K will become non-HFSS, alongside Coco Pops, Corn Flakes and Rice Krispies, after salt content is reduced. The company is also introducing smaller cereal boxes that have less air space and packaging to reduce the use of cardboard.
