General Mills cereal & a coupon

Did you know that General Mills 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.

Did you know that 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.

Other cereal benefits:
Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children’s diets.

Ready-to-eat cereal is the 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.
Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.

Right now if you visit here you will find a $1 off coupon for one of four General Mills cereals.

MyBlogSpark and General Mills sent me four coupons that covered the cost of four different General Mills cereals for my family to try. (and they thought they'd have to ask me to send me coupons for cereal my family already eats on a regular basis and loves...)
I took Jonah with me.
He chose Lucky Charms, Cookie Crisp, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Cocoa Puffs.
Can I just tell you that my family ate all four boxes within two weeks.
Two weeks.
and these were BIG boxes!
Every morning before school they'd have a bowl.
I sent them off to school with the comfort of knowing that they had bellies full of nutrition...
and not of junk.

Use the above coupon to get your favorite General Mills cereal TODAY!
