why breakfast is critical

Doctors, Nutritionists, Moms, and Baby Geniuses all agree: in no way, is skipping breakfast good for your mind, body, or soul. Skipping breakfast can negatively affect your weight, mood, and focus. Rise is a complete breakfast on-the-go. We’re here to solve breakfast skipping.

we brought together the best to build rise

When we started slingshot, we assembled a team of chefs, pediatricians, dietitians and nutrition scientists who helped us understand which nutrients are essential for a complete breakfast. Then we worked together to figure out how to make it on-the-go, completely convenient for you.

why we beat the bowl

So many of us start our morning with a bowl of cereal. Why? Because it’s fast, tasty, suitable for children and adults, and the cleanup is easy. The only problem is that a bowl of cereal in the morning is just like sprinting in the beginning of a marathon. You get ahead in the beginning but then BAM you crash, you slow down and fall behind.

Cereal has a high glycemic index. This basically means that it spikes your blood sugar, giving you a lot of energy really fast but then ultimately setting you up for failure. Only an hour or two after a meal, your blood sugar drops again, fast, leaving you starving way before lunch. 

Slingshot, on the other hand, is metabolized slowly by your body. You have long-lasting energy. You’re a long-distance runner, not a sprinter.
