This giveaway is now closed. See who won here.
For most of my life, my go-to breakfast food has been peanut butter on toast.
That is, until I had a son with a peanut allergy. I tried to live in denial about it… but after eating some peanut butter and giving him a kiss on his cheek that left a rash… I realized that I had to give it up. I love my son more than I love peanut butter.
I’ve since swapped my old stand-by for cereal. Our family favorite is Cheerios, but, I’ll often mix it up with other cereals that happen to be on sale. One area I won’t skimp on: Whole grain. The cereals I purchase must be made from whole grains. A diet high in whole grain has been found to help with diabetes and weight management, and it may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.
General Mills makes it pretty easy to get those whole grains because every Big G cereal contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving. And more than 20 General Mills cereals pack 16 grams or more.
To figure out whether whole grain is a key ingredient of your breakfast cereal, you can look for a whole grain symbol like the big white check on Big G cereals or the Whole Grain Stamp developed by the Whole Grains Council. Or you can scan the ingredient list and choose foods that list a whole grain near the top of the list.
I’d love to help you get more whole grains into your diet and start living healthier! I’m giving away a Big G Cereal prize pack. The prize pack includes a VIP coupon for a free Big G cereal, a cereal on-the-go bowl, a lunch bag, a walking enthusiast kit and a digital jump rope.
