Spark: Win Free Cereal!

Do you have one of those kiddos who turns their nose up at anything green or orange or even slightly vegetably on their plate? Mamas know that while natural nutrition is generally the way to go, a good fortified cereal can be a life-saver for a picky eater. And it turns out that there might be other health benefits to that bowl of Cheerios or Wheat Chex:
  • Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children´s diets.
  • Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child´s diet today.
  • More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.
  • Ready-to-eat cereal eaters tend to consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters.
I received coupons for free General Mills cereal from General Mills through MyBlogSpark. They also provided me with any nutritional information referred to in this Spark.

Now, how would you like to get your hands on a $1 off coupon for General Mills Cereal? I can do even better than that. Since I received 4 coupons for FREE cereal (coupons expire 12/31/10 and are good for 1 box of cereal, up to a $6 value), I've decided to share my good fortune and give 2 away to one lucky reader. To enter this giveway, here's what you need to do before midnight on Wednesday, January 13, 2010:
  • Follow my blog for one entry or subscribe to my feed (see my right sidebar). Leave a comment to let me know. If you already follow me or subscribe, leave me a comment to let me know.
  • For one additional entry: blog about this giveaway, be sure to include a direct link to this post. Leave a comment here linking to your post.
