Happy National Cereal Day!
Kids everywhere rejoice on this day but guess what? I do too. To celebrate national cereal day, we started our day with our new favorite Nature Valley Honey Oat Clusters and added a few banana slices. I’m a hot breakfast fan however as a busy mom, I have a love and appreciation for cereal for breakfast. Who am I kidding? These days cereal for dinner is fine by me. The kids don’t get to enjoy that special treat but I sure do.
I choose Nature Valley because I already love their granola and protein bars. Sometimes I forget to eat. That’s the reality of a SAHM it seems. So many of my mom friends share the same thing… “It’s 12:30 and I have not eaten”. Because of this, we all find joy in enjoying a bowl of cereal with our kids in the morning or during mommy down time aka nap time. And moms, you know we need our protein to keep up with the kiddos so the 12-13 grams of protein in each serving of of nature valley cereal plus milk makes it a great way to start the day. Having almost have the daily recommended serving of whole grains (23g) is an added bonus. And the fiber… need I say more!
We grabbed a box of the Baked Oat Bites too. It’s perfect to throw in snack bags for our daily outings or to keep in the car in case the toddler gets hungry. Our store was out of stock but the next time we go I will definitely be picking up the Chocolate Oat Clusters because Chocolate! I can’t wait to get my hands on that. I’ll be using the $1 OFF coupon to get that chocolate goodness. Make sure you grab a coupon too.
For the rest of National Cereal Day we spent some time sorting the different components of the Honey Oats Clusters. Yes this mama is always thinking of a way to incorporate a lesson.
