Better General Mills Cereal - Review and Giveaway

As I mentioned back in December, General Mills has announced their commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, and providing whole grain.

MyBlogSpark has provided me with 4 VIP coupons for free boxes of General Mills cereals of our choice so that we could see if we can taste and feel the difference. We love cereal in the morning: it's fast, easy and nutritious breakfast that makes life with three kids a little easier :) And hey, did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children´s diets. Cereal Health and Wellness is a good resource to learn more ;)

We have used three of the VIP coupons and purchased our favorites: Cinnamon Toast Crunch for hubby and me, Cocoa Puffs for Vicki and Nicki and Banana Nut Cheerios for Mark. We did a "blind test" but frankly couldn't taste the difference: we got the same great taste that we know and love.

Right now you can save $1 off your favorite General Mills cereal here, and I will send our fourth VIP coupon for a FREE box of any General Mills cereal to one of you to help you start your morning juuuust right - with a bowl of your favorite yummy cereal. Just leave me a comment :)
The winner will be randomly selected a week from today, on Friday, Jan. 29th
