General Mills Cereals Now Contain Less Sugar and $1 Coupon

That is right! General Mills is now making the same cereals that we know and love with LESS SUGAR! Dexter is a Cheerio-aholic and should be in a 12 step program. When all else fails, he eats Cheerios. Thanks to My Blog Spark for sending me some coupons to try the new General Mills Cereals. I bought some Honey Nut Cheerios (which I never have given to D yet) and he devoured them! WOW was he a maniac when it came time to eat his beloved Cheerios. He was surprised by the difference between them and his original love.

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.

Head over and print a $1 off Coupon good on Cocoa Puffs, Trix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Lucky Charms. See for yourself how less sugar doesn't need to be less taste!
