Healthy Breakfast Options {GIVEAWAY} Week 1

General Mills has teamed up with MyBlogSpark to spread the word about the benefits of kid's cereal. Once a week, I will host a giveaway for a fun cereal theme prize pack!

This week is all about healthy breakfast options. General Mills commissioned a survey of D.C.area parents to uncover their children's eating habits, as well as what they deem important to help ensure their children grow up healthy. As parents strive to make smart food choices, nearly all (97 percent) agree it's important for their children to eat breakfast and four out five (86 percent) say cereal is a healthy breakfast choice.

What do you look for in a good breakfast for your child? The survey found these results:

81 percent cited good flavor as important
60 percent want a breakfast packed with vitamins and minerals
59 percent look for convenient options
40 percent want a breakfast option that is low in fat
We are huge cereal fans around here. Cooper and I often eat it for breakfast and lunch. Coop doesn't drink milk so I love that he gets some in his cereal! A 2009 study found that children who eat cereal have significantly higher intakes of whole grain, folate, calcium, iron, fiber, zinc and several other nutrients. I have noticed so many cereals lately adding in more nutrients. Makes me feel so good that I'm "sneaking" them in!

This weeks giveaway:
The winner of this week's giveaway will receive 10 sample cereal boxes and an insulated milk pitcher. Cooper has thoroughly enjoyed the "continental breakfast" we've had going on this week!
