These are a few of my Favorite Things....

My name is Meghan and I am a cereal addict.
Cold cereal.
Straight up from the box.
Like these:

I prefer kid like cereal, as you can plainly see from the box of Lucky Charms sitting there.

Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? They do! 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. Woo hoo!

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 go
here you can print out a $1 off coupon for one of four General Mills cereals. Total score!

I chose the 4 above cereals to test out.
Lucky Charms is for me, altho I let the kids have a little...just a little!
I got Kix & the Cheerios for the kids.
Mainly Cheeks.
He thinks Kix are a special treat!
I'm not telling him they are good for him :>)
He had 2 bowls as an after dinner treat, sans milk.
I'm not ready for that mess yet.

I have been a staunch General Mills advocate since I was old enough to eat their products so I suggest checking them out. Look for the white check mark!

Tell me tho. before you go what is your fav cereal?
