Breakfast is the most important meal of the day - Review/Giveaway

I rarely get to eat breakfast, and I must say, it isn't my favorite meal to eat. Although every once and a while I will eat breakfast for dinner. The kids love when I switch around the day and do this.

My children, however, love breakfast, and I think if they could eat cereal for every meal, they would.

We recently had the opportunity to try a new product from Cheerios. It is Banana Nut Cheerios.
Let me tell you, I love it, and so do my children. It tastes like banana bread in milk, mmmm, so tasty and good.

This cereal was a big hit in my family, and I must say, I am glad, because usually my kids want all these sugary cereals and this one is a more healthier choice. So, as a mom, who cares about the foods my kids eat, and I try hard to have them eat healthy food everyday. Especially as a plussizemommy, I think I try extra hard to feed them carefully, so they wont be overweight.

(compliments from Cheerio's)
Banana Nut Cheerios® combines the whole grain goodness of Cheerios® with the great taste of real banana - a breakfast your whole family will love! Even better, Banana Nut Cheerios® cereal is a good source of calcium and Vitamin D, and is made with whole grain. It may reduce the risk of heart disease as part of a heart healthy diet.* Visit www.banananutcheerios.com for discount coupons, great recipes and additional information.

I like using cornflakes to make crispy "fried" chicken. I coat the chicken in honey mustard and then dredge the chicken in corn flakes. This makes a nice and healthy version of fried chicken!!

yummy!!

I love cereal. All I add is skim milk. And I also eat cereal directly from the box for a great snack (adding nothing but my enjoyment).

nape said...

I love making -- and eating -- original Chex Mix. And last week I saw Rice Krispie treats fashioned to look exactly like sushi--it was fabulous! I'm dying to try making it.

I love to add soy milk, low fat and vanilla flavor. I don't have to add any sweetener and it is so good for you.

Ibreak4glass said...

My boys and I take our favorite cereal with nuts and coconut and mix in melted dark chocolate, spoon it on waxed paper and there you have it. sweet and healthy chocolate bites.

I like to make a "trail Mix" with cereal. I like to mix healthy cereals.. with some MINI chocolate chips (makes you feel like you are getting more), unsalted almonds, dried fruits, like cranberries, dried cherries, raisins, and mini pretzel sticks.. I sometimes add dried soy beans.. add whatever is in YOUR pantry.
NO measurements!
