General Mills Cereal

MyBlogSpark recently provided my with four coupons to try any General Mills cereals for free.  General Mills has recently announced a commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, and providing whole grain.

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.

The information and free cereal coupons were all provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.

With my coupons I chose Kix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and two boxes of Raisin Nut Bran.  The Raisin Nut Bran were for Chris and I, but the other two were to share with Lorelei.  I am always looking for things she can eat.  Since she refused baby food from teh beginning but only has four teeth, this has proven to be difficult!  Both of those cereals were a win!  Even though I was provided the coupons for the cerals, the opinions are my own.
