My Blog Spark is a company that helps other companies promote their products, from time to time they send me some great freebies to try and coupons. They are also offering a free offer for one of my readers as well. More about that to come later.
Right now I want to let you know about the General Mills cereals. My Spark and General Mills sent me some coupons to try their cereals for free. Thanks!
I went to the store and got some of my favorite General Mills cereals. I was excited because I received an email from My Spark with this information,
"This week 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."
As a mom of two young girls, well one baby and a toddler, I was happy to hear that they were making their products even healthier then before. When looking for snacks and food for my girls I am always reading the product labels to make sure the food is good for them. I also enjoy eating cereal as a snack for myself as they are fortified with vitamins and other good 'stuff'.
Here is some more information from their corporation and a coupon for $1 off of some great General Mills cereals.
"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.
