A recent study shows 77 percent of D.C. parents believe maintaining a healthy body weight is important to ensuring their child’s health! I agree completely. I want my kids to enjoy breakfast, I want my kids to eat a healthy breakfast, and I want to ensure a long healthy life for each of them too.
When it comes to fighting childhood obesity, there is a lot to love about cereal! Frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights. That’s true of men, women, and children who choose sweetened cereals.
*Teen girls who eat cereal are less likely to become overweight than non cereal eaters.
*Boys’ cereal consumption is associated with lower body mass index (BMI)
is a great place to read more about the healthy benefits to eating cereal for breakfast.
I have one final giveaway for you, my loyal readers.
It is a great giftpack from general mills. You will receive 6 mini cereal bowls as well as a to go container that will hold some cereal and milk. I plan to send this to go container with my son to 2nd grade. He is allowed to have a morning snack and this will be perfect, no thinking about what that snack will be. He will fill up his cereal container by himself and I will pour in the milk and we will be all set!
