Do your children have a healthy breakfast every morning? I’m a big stickler for the healthy breakfast. I know that if your day starts out with a good breakfast, it can be the difference between a good or bad day. I have witnessed it in my own children. Sponsored Post
Convenient And Healthy Breakfast
But mornings are also very hectic in my house. Getting 4 kids off to school every morning with a healthy breakfast isn’t always easy. I was happy to see that some of the cereals that my kids love are also healthy. Personally, I could eat cereal for every meal (especially if it is cinnamon flavored.)
General Mills conducted a survey of DC area parents to find out more about their children’s eating habits. Here are some of the interesting statistics that came out of the survey:
- 97% agree that it’s important for their children to eat breakfast
- 88% agree that cereal is a healthy option
And what are parents looking for in a cereal?
- 81% said good flavor is important
- 60% want a breakfast with vitamins and minerals
- 59% look for convenient options
- 40% want a breakfast option that is low in fat
- 24% look for a breakfast with at least 8 grams of whole wheat
Those all sound like what I look for in a healthy breakfast option. I need a convenient AND healthy breakfast or I won’t buy it.
Cereal As a Healthy Breakfast
Here is a good video that explains some of the benefits of cereal as a healthy breakfast choice.
I received the gift pack shown above in the picture and my kids and I tried the cereal. The cinnamon Cheerios and Reese’s Puffs were my favorite. I am going to buy the Reese’s Puffs to eat when I have my Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup cravings. We eat a lot of cereal as a snack in our house too.
