Welcome to the Mini-Wheats False Advertising Settlement
Consumers alleged in the lawsuit that Kellogg's Mini-Wheats cereal was falsely advertised to improve kids’ attentiveness, memory and other cognitive functions to a degree not supported by competent clinical evidence.

To submit a claim for refunds, click here.
Under the settlement, consumers may receive a cash refund for up to three boxes of Mini-Wheats branded cereal. The settlement refund is up to $5 per box. If any monies remain in the settlement fund after paying all valid refund claims, notice and administrative costs, attorneys’ fees, and service awards, settlement refunds will be increased up to three times, for a total maximum recovery of $45 per claimant. No proof of purchase is required.
If you submitted a claim for a cash payment from the settlement, please be patient. The trial court approved the settlement, however three class members filed appeals. Settlement payments cannot be made until the appeals are resolved. We do not know how long that will take.
