The Importance of a Healthy Breakfast! Review & Cereal Giveaway!



General Mills provided me with coupons for free cereal through MyBlogSpark.  Since, I already buy Cheerios & Kix regularly I was happy to get them. 

I eat Kix and my daughter eats Cheerios, almost every morning.  I like eating Kix because it's low in sugar and calories and helps me maintain my weight and it's quick and easy.  I feed my daughter Cheerios because she has been eating them since she was able to chew solid foods on her own as snacks and then naturally it then became her cereal of choice to eat in the morning.  I like it and feel good about feeding to her because it has fiber, low in calories, and sugar.

Here is some information provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark:
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.

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.

I'm a label reader so I thought you might like to read the labels for yourself.
