A 'uterus-shaped' cereal has been launched with the goal of putting conversations about periods on the table.

Feminine care brand Intimina developed its raspberry-flavoured 'Period Crunch' to encourage families to discuss menstruation more openly at breakfast.

Despite being marketed as womb-shaped, the cereal actually resembles the entire female reproductive system. 

The wheat-based cereal — a PR stunt which won't actually ever go on sale — is dyed red to mimic the colour of blood. 

Intimina claims conversations about periods are not 'truly normalised' and it wanted to 'make a statement' about the issue.

Although it won't ever be stuck on supermarket shelves, people can get a free box by contacting the Swedish company. 

A survey of more than 2,000 people by the company found 48 per cent of girls and women are too embarrassed to talk about their period.
