We are a family of convenience when it comes to breakfast.  My kiddos normally have cereal and milk.  We do not favor one brand over the others, we love them all!  Thanks to My Blog Spark and General Mills we were able to try out some of GM's cereals for free.  I let me kids pick out what they wanted to try and we ended up with two boxes of Lucky Charms, Reeses Puffs, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.  What can I say they know the goods when they see them!  My youngest son loves Lucky Charms he of course eats all the marshmallows first then goes back and has the cereal part.  Below are some nutritional facts, and of course a coupon for General Mills cereal.  Also if you have not signed up for My Blog Spark go over to there website and check them out!

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.

Target now has retro boxes of General Mills cereal.

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.

Right now if you visit here you will find a $1 off coupon for one of four General Mills cereals.
