General Mills Cereal now have more fiber and less sugar!

I am a member of the online community MyBlogSpark, who sent me 4 coupons for free General Mills cereals and in return have asked me to post some information on my blog.

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. 

Ok, those are the words of MyBlogSpark, here are mine. If you come to my home and open the cereal cupboard you will ALWAYS find at least one kind of General Mills cereal in it. Fruit Loops, Chex Mix, Fiber One, not to mention at least 3 different kinds of Cheerios. I have feed Cheerios (yellow box) to my kids since they could finally manipulate their tiny fingers to pick them up. Now, my 18 year old son is constantly telling me to buy Banana Nut Cheerios and my 19 year old daughter will eat only Honey Nut Cheerios exclusively. I have 2 more boys, one is 10 and one 15 and they love Cinnamon Toast Crunch and many others. My current favorite is Banana Nut Cheerios too. Who knew you could have a cereal that tastes likes real bananas without putting actual bananas in it yourself? So cool.

This was very easy for me to write because General Mills cereals is a product I truly believe in. Knowing they've listened to all the parents out there and decided to lessen the amount of sugar and increase the amount of fiber makes me a happy mommy. This is a company that is listening to what we have to say. Not only are they listening to us but they are acting on what is said, which seems to be a rare thing in this day and age. Listening to consumers? Imagine that.

Thank you to MyBlogSpark for letting take part in this and an even bigger thank you to General Mills for...well, for listening!
