Company Release - 1/25/2019 8:00 AM ET

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Jan. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recent Kellogg's survey conducted online by The Harris Poll, a majority of Americans say physical fitness is one of the most important factors for overall wellness (63%), compared to only 38% who say the same about digestive wellness. So in their new campaign for HI! Happy Inside cereal, launching today, Kellogg's is working with actress, New York Times bestselling author, and host of E!'s Busy Tonight, Busy Philipps to challenge Americans to take a #GutCheck and question whether they are supporting their digestive wellness. With prebiotics, probiotics and fiber, HI! Happy Inside is a new cereal that helps support gut health.

"As someone who considers myself healthy by prioritizing fitness and following wellness trends, I'm so excited to partner with HI! Happy Inside, to remind people that being happy outside starts within," said Philipps. "HI! Happy Inside provides me with a tasty, convenient way to focus on my gut health, which has such an important role in my overall health."

The "Gut Check" campaign will be encouraging people to take a #GutCheck and see how real food like HI! Happy Inside can help support one of 2019's biggest trends, digestive wellness. People located in NYC can also experience the launch through a pop-up gym at Kellogg's NYC on January 26 from 8-12pm to be one of the first consumers to get a free "Gut Check" trial of the product themselves.
