General Mills Benefits of Cereal And Giveaway #MyBlogSpark

6/27/11


This week let's discuss the importance of taste and nutrition in your breakfast choices. Let's face it, if your child is anything like mine, they will not choose a cereal that does not taste good, no matter the nutritional value. I try to steer my son toward the healthier lower sugar choices as much as possible. It can be difficult since he has such a sweet tooth!

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.

My kids are only a year old so I'm looking for ways to incorporate all of that into their diet. Right now their favorite food is yogurt so that helps a lot!

I always try to get a lot of different color foods on their plates. Usually this way it means healthier foods (i.e. blueberries, carrots, watermelon, etc) Lots of variety!

My children are young yet so they love to drink milk and they both LOVE cheese! My daughter also loves Ovaltine and that is a great source of vitamins and minerals.
