Pilnick appeared on CNBC on Feb. 21. and was responding to a question about high food prices.

He said cereal “has always been quite affordable,” noting that Kellogg has been advertising cereal for dinner — a concept that’s “landing really well right now,” he added.

“In general, the cereal category is a place that a lot of folks might come to because the price of a bowl of cereal with milk and with fruit is less than a dollar. So you can imagine why a consumer under pressure might find that to be a good place to go,” Pilnick said.

“Over 25% of our consumption is outside the breakfast occasion. A lot of it’s at dinner and that occasion continues to grow.”

But the comments have created an uproar online. “Cereal for dinner isn’t nutrition,” one person commented in response to the CNBC interview posted on YouTube. “The peasants have no dinner! ‘Let them eat cereal.’ says Kellogg,” wrote another.

Some people suggested the CEO would never regularly eat cereal for dinner himself or feed it to his kids as a main meal.

The concept of eating cereal outside of breakfast isn’t new. Fans of the classic ‘90s TV show “Seinfeld” know the main character likes to eat cereal at all hours of the day.

What does a nutrition expert think about that idea?

“There is no rule that says you can’t have cereal for dinner,” Katherine Shary, a registered dietitian at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, tells

“There’s nothing wrong with having cereal for lunch or dinner.”

But you have to keep in mind certain guidelines to find the healthiest cereal and make it a filling, healthy meal, she adds.
