Does your family like cereal?

Around here, we go in "cereal spells". For example, we might go months without any of us being interested in cereal; then, I might have a good coupon, buy some cereal, and we'll be interested in it again for a time.  It just depends. 

Several years ago, we had a "cereal connection" - a relative worked for General Mills and used to get us boxes of cereal by the case (and he'd give us 4-5 cases at a time). Yes, it was a challenge to store; but it was nice to have that "never-ending" supply of cereal at our fingertips. We became die-hard General Mills fans.  The girls even have Wheaties boxes with their picture(s) on them! 

I was pleased to receive the following information about General Mills from MyBlogSpark, and wanted to share:

Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children’s diets.

Other cereal benefits:
  • Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children’s diets.
  • Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child’s diet today.
  • More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.
Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.

For more information about kids and cereals, please visit Cereal Health and Wellness.

Right now if you visit here you will find a $1 off coupon for one of four General Mills cereals. If you choose to participate we will also provide you with VIP coupons for 4 boxes of General Mills cereal to help your family come together at the breakfast table every morning. 

NOTE: I received coupons for free General Mills cereal, in exchange for sharing this information. The free cereal did not, however, hinder or influence my opinion.
