What is your favorite way to kick start your morning? Personally, I’m a strong cup of coffee type of gal. After I have had my first cup, my eyeballs actually begin to function. Then I’m ready for some sustenance. We all need to start with a healthy breakfast and fill up with some whole grains and protein to get the day started properly.
Getting my family of five up and out the door on time in the morning is bit of a task if I am to be honest. Getting three children out the door filled with breakfast is not always easy. That is where General Mills makes it easy for me. On every box of General Mills cereal is the whole grain first ingredient check. I simply see this box and it lets me know how much whole grain is in the box of cereal my children have selected.
My kids get to select a yummy cereal and I get the satisfaction knowing they are eating whole grains and loving it. They don’t even know they are filling up in the morning with the whole grains their little bodies need.
