General Mills: Lower Sugar!

I am a cereal fanatic. Seriously. I have like 6 boxes in our pantry and it was something I craved like crazy when I was pregnant. It makes me happy to hear that General Mills is going to lower the sugar in cereal marketed towards kids (those are the yummy ones!) Their goal is lower it down to single digits grams of sugar per serving!

That is great news for parents, and us cereal lovers too! I know I am new at the mom thing, but have worked with kids for years and find that sugar is everywhere in kids diets these days and childhood obesity is at an all time high. This is a great start! I eat cereal all the time. Sometimes I call it dinner, sometimes I eat it right out of the box. The giant box of Honey Nut Cheerios and Lucky Charms did not last long at this house! Now, I can still enjoy them and feel better about it!

You can find a coupons here for $1 off one of four General Mills cereals. Find information on how cereal can health benefits here!

I was not compensated for this post. General Mills provided coupons for product samples and information through MyBlogSpark.

I love cereal too, I eat it all the time. My throat has been sooo sore and oddly enough milk is incredibly soothing on it. I actually JUST finished eatinga bowl of corn flakes.

I eat cereal like crazy! I ate honey bunches of oats every day while I was pregnant...I wonder if that's made by General Mills?
