Product Review - General Mills Cereal

General Mills is one of those companies we all grew up with and trust to bring us a good quality product. Well, thanks to the good folks at General Mills and My Blog Spark, I was able to try out some awesome General Mills cereals. I was sent 4 coupons for 4 free boxes of cereal.

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.

Other cereal benefits:
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.
Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.

They will be lowered the sugar in their cereals and I am thrilled with this! We eat a lot of cereal in this house and it is really one of the major favorites of the Little Princess. Ask her what she wants for breakfast and she instantly says, "Cereal-an-milk". This comes out as one word.

A recent media announcement came from General Mills stating....

General Mills announced a 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.

What I really like is the design on the box regarding nutrition information

Okay, my picture is so great, but isn't it nice to see this information so clearly and not have to try and read the fine print? I really like this idea.

You can get a coupon for $1.00 off of a box of General Mills cereal HERE!

I want to thank General Mills and My Blog Spark for giving me the opportunity to try these cereals.


I did NOT receive any compensation for my opinion. I received 4 coupons for a free box of cereal each. My opinions are completely my own.
