you know i'm a "mean mom" because i make my kids...
...eat the crusts on their bread.
...eat the peels on their apples.
...drink the last of their milk after they finish their cereal.
i'm starting to feel a little bit better about my "meanness" after learning from general mills that when kids drink their leftover milk from cereal bowls, they are closer to fulfilling their body's daily diary, calcium, and vitamin d needs.
to help kids feel better about finishing up those last drops of milk, certain "big g" cereals now include fun colorful straws that feature favorite big g cereal characters. these straws are collectable, connectable and curvy! while they have fun using the straws to drink their milk, you can feel better about helping your kids work toward stronger bones and muscles due to their calcium intake.
here are a few fun facts that general mills wants you to know...
- there are six different colorful straws you can collect.
- participating big g cereals include: dinnamon toast crunch® (17 oz.), lucky charms®(16 oz.), reese’s® puffs (18 oz.), honey nut cheerios® (17 oz.), trix®(14.8 oz) and cocoa puffs® (16.5 oz).
- big g cereals are made with more whole grain than any other ingredient. combined with a ½ cup of milk, these big g cereals can provide a great start to your children's day.
...and you know how i love to offer you all something fun for your day. i have a package to send to someone with a box of big g cereal, a "spilled milk" shaped bowl (so fun!), two glowing cups, two tangle toys and (of course) a curvy straw.
i received this information, a prize pack and a giveaway by general mills through myblogspark. regardless, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are purely my own.
