Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. If you skip breakfast, you are more likely to 'make up' your caloric intake in your other meals and even possibly snacking late at night. Studies have shown that kids who eat breakfast perform better at school.
My youngest son has inherited my sweet tooth. Candy and sweets were part of his diet, and yes, cereal was a part of that. When he turned 16, he made a 180 degree turnaround and banned himself from most sugars, sweets, and even soda. He even read the nutritional labels of cereals and chose those low in sugar.
Over the past year, he has lost 40 pounds and gained an 1 1/2" in height. He traded in his PS3, Wii, and games in for a weight bench and punching bag setup. He looks, feels better, and has more energy than ever before.
I was even more excited to find out through MyBlogSpark and General Mills that I would receive free cereal coupons to help my family come together at the breakfast table and dial down our sugar acuity. Thank you!
I used the coupons to get the following cereals: Lucky Charms, Honey Nut Cheerios, Reeses Peanut Butter Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
If you guessed Honey Nut Cheerios, you are right!
