Bilingual is Better

More and more breakfast is becoming a challenge in my house because of our hectic schedules. My girl is pretty set on her ways and she likes to wake up, chill with a bottle of milk (yes, she still loves her sippy cup at age 5!), watch one cartoon and then get ready for school. In between that routine, I need to make sure she sits down with (or without us, sometimes!) to eat a nutritious breakfast that can get her through the day.

Our options for quickie breakfasts are usually waffles, yogurt with granola and fruit, a toast with almond butter and honey, scrambled eggs or a cereal with milk. Nowadays, cereal is becoming her breakfast of choice and I’ve embraced it because I grew up eating a lot of cereal as well.

Since Kellogg is a SpanglishBaby sponsor, I reached out to them to find out what the benefits of cereal are and found many of them on their website.

Here are a 5 reasons to #LoveYourCereal:

1. A bowl of Kellogg’s cereal plus one cup milk provides protein and can help close the gap on the four “nutrients of concern” most likely to be lacking in kids’ diets including fiber, calcium, vitamin D and potassium.

2. On average, breakfast cereal provides only 4 percent of the average person’s daily intake of added sugar in the U.S.

3. Research shows that children who eat cereal regularly for breakfast tend to weigh less.

4. Cereal can provide a good source of fiber, which 9 out of 10 adults and children do not get enough of

5. Is affordable and easy to serve at an average of $0.50 per serving

Why do you love your cereal?
