Healthy Strides from General Mills

What do you eat for breakfast? What about the kids? In our house cereal is King, especially Cheerios and Kix, add some fruit or yogurt and the kids are set for the morning either at school or for play.

General Mills has recently announced that they have committed to reduce the sugar content of some of their most popular ready-to-eat cereals. Ready-to-eat cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and nutrients, such as vitamins A, B6, iron, niacin and zinc, and cereal is a top source of key nutrients in children’s diets. Today’s cereals are more nutritious than ever. Every General Mills Big G cereal contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving, and more than 20 General Mills cereals deliver 16 grams or more.

These changes are refreshing since cereal is not only a breakfast staple but also a go-to snack at any time of the day. A bowl of Frosted Cheerios or Reese’s Puffs is a great on the go snack for the car or a walk to the park. Keeping the candy, chips and junk food to a minimum is important to me. Cereal is one of the healthiest breakfast choices you can make. Ready-to-eat cereal has fewer calories than almost any other common breakfast option.  Did you know a bowl of cereal with skim milk has approximately 150 calories versus a bagel with LIGHT cream cheese can have over 300 calories. Start the day off on the right foot with a nutritious meal without compromising on taste.
