Kelloggâs Special K, the worldâs leading breakfast cereal is a simple and enjoyable low-fat breakfast option that as a part of healthy eating and an active lifestyle can help women in managing their weight.Â The brand unveils its new campaign online. The advertisement featuresÂ Kelloggâs Special K brand ambassador Lara Dutta in a candid moment, sharing her secret to maintaining her figure with millions of women across India.
Women often wonder how style icons manage to have fabulous figures, and Lara is one actress whose figure has always been aspirational for many women. The idea for the new Kelloggâs Special K campaign came from the insight that many women think there is some big secret behind successfully achieving and maintaining a fabulous figure. Whatâs more, they think it is likely to be something that is difficult, expensive and inaccessible to them.
In this campaign, Lara talks openly to women, letting them in on the secret to managing weight - quite simply, it is to âeatâ!
On the campaign, Brand Ambassador âLara Duttaâ said,Â âMy friends always ask me the secret to maintaining my figure and I always tell them, I eat!!! I start my day by eating a low fat breakfast like, Kellogg's Special K, as part of a healthy lifestyle. I am excited about this campaign because it allows me to share with so many women a simple, but important, fact on managing weight. People who eat breakfast are slimmer than those who donât. I encourage them to try a low fat breakfast like Kelloggâs Special K and see if they feel the difference for themselves.â
Vikram Bahl, Marketing Director, Kellogg India said,Â âIn todayâs highly demanding environment, women are looking for accessible solutions to their weight management concerns. Therefore, the new advertisement showcases the role of a low fat breakfast like Kelloggâs Special K that can help managing weight. We are also thrilled to announce the unveiling of the campaign first time online on the portalÂ www.mysecret.co.in. It is a portal where Lara Dutta shares her secret to maintaining a fabulous figure. He further added, âKelloggâs Special K is a low-fat breakfast option which as a part of healthy eating and an active lifestyle can help women in managing their weight, and is designed to meet the nutritional needs of Indian women and help provide a stepping stone to a healthy lifestyle.â
The campaign was kicked off with a teaser on Aug 11, which played across key online sites for one week, and led viewers to the specially created microsite,Â www.mysecret.co.in. On the 19thAugust, the new ad was revealed online, a first for Kellogg India. It will be aired on TV after a week.
