Kellogg's Cereal- Start Simple, Start Right!

You know what they say... breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I do agree, and it's one of my favorites. While I'd love to whip up a nice breakfast with eggs, sausage, fruit, etc. ever's really not practical for me to do. I need simple and easy most mornings. Cereal is a great way to get the kids fed and get them what they need out of a meal, quick and easy!

When buying cereal for my kids I want to find a cereal that 1.) they will eat, and 2.) is good for them. Those things don't always coincide unfortunately. However, Kellogg's makes some great options out there that the kids and I can compromise on!

Kellogg's has a great philosophy from seed to spoon- "By giving you our best, you can be at your best." 

Seven ingredients or less, plus vitamins and minerals. SEVEN ingredients or less. I LOVE looking at the ingredient list and being able to read (and understand) the list. You can watch some interesting videos about where Kellogg's gets the simple grains that they use (just click) wheat, rice, corn. I feel a lot better about giving my kids Kellogg's cereals vs. some of the other brands out there simply because I know there aren't any crazy added junk to them.

We've really enjoyed trying out the different Kellogg's cereals that we were sent. My favorites are the Raisin Bran and All-Bran varieties, but the kids loved childhood classics Corn Flakes and Rice Krispies!

I even decided to try making marshmallow treats with the Gluten Free Rice Krispies... use gluten free marshmallows and you have a great tasting, kid friendly, yummy treat! Although, I did learn that if you melt the marshmallows for too long you end up with hard treats...nothing my kids' teeth couldn't get through, though! LOL. 

So, if you're looking for a great start to your family's day (or a delicious treat for the end of it!), check out the cereal aisle in your local grocery store to see if you can find the orange banners on the top of Kellogg's Simple Grain Cereals!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kellogg’s. I received sample products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
