General Mills Cereal!!

Does your family eat breakfast together every morning? Mine does. Breakfast is a must in our house, and you would think that my children have not eaten in a month if they do not get it on time. Anyway, what we eat for breakfast varies, depending on what is on hand. I was recently given some free coupons from General Mills and My Blog Spark for General Mills cereal. We decided to get Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and needless to say it was a hit. My children thoroughly enjoyed every last bite.

This is some interesting information that was also provided by General Mills and My Blog Spark:

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. 

If you would like to try some General Mills cereal for yourself, you can print out a $1.00 coupon here. 

All coupons and information for this post was provided by My Blog Spark and General Mills.
