Giveaway -- Share Your Love for Cereal (ends 6/18)
Weekday mornings are always a busy time in my house. Sometimes when we're running late, it is tempting to skip breakfast, but as a parent I know that a healthy breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Recently, General Mills conducted a survey of D.C area parents and found that 97 percent agree it's important for their children to eat breakfast and 86 percent state that cereal is a healthy breakfast choice. Check out the D.C. Breakfast Survey to view the complete findings.
Count me in as a parent who believes in the benefits of cereal. In fact, it is often the breakfast of choice because it is tasty, quick and nutritious. Perfect for those time crunched mornings!
Did you know cereal is one of the healthiest breakfast options you can make? Today cereals are packed wih vitamins, minerals and are often high in fiber. You can learn more about the benefits of cereal by visiting the site Cereal Benefits.
