General Mills and MyBlogSpark Reviw + {GIVEAWAY}

Winner of week 1 giveaway is Lindsay at The Berteau Life! Congrats!

I got a bit carried away in the craziness of last week, so this week I'm playing catch-up and there will be 2 winners!

I've been a big cereal fan for all of time, but am continually surprised by all these stats! Cereal is totally good for you! I am feeling better and better about my midnight bowl in bed. Here is some info that surprised me.

Week 2 - The Truth Behind the Bowl
Week 2 prize pack is 6 sample boxes of cereal along with 4 kid friendly spoons and 4 Crate and Barrel bowls!

Did you know?
  • Cereal is lower in calories and higher in nutrition than many other breakfast options like bagels with cream cheese and pancakes?
  • A 2009 study of children aged 6 to 18 shows cereal eaters have healthier body weights than those who don´t eat cereal, regardless of sweetness level.
  • Cereal eaters consume less fat than non-cereal eaters.
  • Not all cereals are equal and it´s important to read the labels -- General Mills is proud of its commitment to reduce sugar in all of its kids´ cereals to single-digit levels per serving.
  • General Mills has more than 30 nutritious cereals with 130 calories or less per serving.
Week 3 - Taste and Nutrition in Breakfast Choices
Week 3 prize pack is 6 sample size boxes of cereal and this awesome cereal dispenser! We already have ours filled and are loving it!

Did you know?
  • Cereal is a great breakfast option because it is the number one dietary source of many key nutrients including iron, zinc and folic acid. Frequent cereal eaters tend to have better nutrient intakes.
  • A typical breakfast contributes more than 30 percent of needed calcium, iron and B vitamins while delivering less than 20 percent of daily calories.
  • In addition, ready-to-eat cereal is the top source of whole grain in kids´ diets.
Big G is the only leading line of kids' cereals to contain at least 8 grams of whole grain (48 grams recommended daily) and a good source of both calcium and vitamin D in every serving. In addition, cereal is an inexpensive but nutrient-dense option. On average, a bowl of cereal with milk is approximately 50 cents per serving.
