General Mills Cereal Review

I recently was given the opportunity to enjoy 4 complementary boxes of cereal offered to me by General Mills through My Blog Spark.
General Mills 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.

Benefits enjoyed by 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.
-account for only 5% of sugar in children´s diets.
-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.

As many of you with children know, breakfast is also one of the most important meals of the day!
A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school.  (Plus, how great is it when your 6 year old can get the cereal and milk out and get breakfast going for him and his brothers especially when I've been awake half the night with out new baby Mia!)

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. 
With our free cereal coupons, my family enjoyed two boxes of Total Raisin Bran, one box of regular Cheerios and one box of Honey Nut Cheerios. With 5 kids, cereal goes fast around here and I appreciate the opportunity to review for free, General MIlls cereals through My Blog Spark!


  1. Hi April-so is baby here? Let me know! :0)

    Also-don't forget to put a disclaimer in all of your reviews, or you could be fined several thousand dollars. You just need to note who gave you what and if if was free or if you received a financial compensation for it-it has to be in every post to be in compliance. HTH

    Take care

  2. Oh, I must have skipped that ditty on baby Mia! How did it go? How are you feeling? Bet she is a sweetie! Blessings and congrats!
