I am a huge fan of General Mills cereals, I love their Rice Chex and my kids love the Frosted Cheerios. I recently received coupons to try a few boxes of General Mills cereals from My Blog Spark, but I already knew just how much my family loves General Mills.
Some facts about General Mills ready to eat cereals:
- 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.
I say that study is pretty accurate. I know if my daughter doesn’t eat a healthy breakfast she doesn’t do as well in school as far as concentrating and only talking when appropriate.
