Kellogg’s VR experience raises awareness of gut health
Kellogg’s has launched an interactive campaign in Australia to highlight the importance of gut health.
The campaign, called ‘Gut Bacteria Reef’ and created by TBWA\Eleven Sydney and Nakatomi, uses virtual reality (VR) to teach players that their gut is much like a coral reef, home to trillions of organisms that need specific nutrients to thrive.
As part of the campaign Kellogg’s has also partnered with the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium
Players take a deep dive into the human gut, armed with high-fiber Kellogg’s cereals, to help them nourish the good bacteria and allow them to grow and prevail over the bad bacteria.
Kellogg’s hopes this will help Australians understand that fiber is vital for the maintenance of a healthy gut. 50% of Australians experience gut health problems every year, and two-thirds of Aussies are still not meeting their daily recommended intake of fiber.

As part of the campaign Kellogg’s has also partnered with the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium and invited visitors to try the VR experience and take a dive into their gut.
“Our cereals contain key sources of fiber that can help Australians maintain a healthy gut. We have combined the science of gut health with the fun of play in an innovative way that will lead to more Australians understanding the complexities and needs of the microbiome that lives in all of us,” said Dan Bitti, senior marketing manager for breakfast at Kellogg’s.
