General Mills “Grains of Goodness”!

109

Did you know that studies have found that a diet rich in whole grain can be helpful in maintaining a healthy heart, managing weight and may also reduce the risk for diabetes and certain types of cancer?

Only whole grain gives you the vital nutrients from the complete grain. In addition to fiber, whole grain contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients important for a healthy diet.

General Mills is the only leading cereal company to guarantee whole grain in every box. Every day, General MillsΒ΄ Big G Cereals – which include Cheerios, Fiber One, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Chex, Total and Lucky Charms – deliver 35 million servings of whole grain to Americans. General Mills makes it easy to find whole grains, just look for the white check on the top of every Big G cereal box for your whole grain guarantee.

In a national survey, 91 percent of Americans said they want to incorporate more whole grain foods into their diets. In fact, nine out of 10 people in the U.S. still do not eat the minimum recommended daily amount of whole grain (at least three servings, or 48 grams). Do you? Why not start keeping track of how many whole grains you eat to find out?

I would like to invite you to take the Whole Grain Awareness Challenge.
Visit www.WholeGrainNation.com to put your whole grain knowledge to the test.

In addition to sharing the good news about whole grain, just last month General Mills announced a commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single-digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, and providing whole grain.

To promote eating healthy, General Mills & MyBlogSpark provided me with a “Grains of Goodness” prize pack!

The “Grains of Goodness” prize pack included the following:

* 2 VIP coupons for Big G cereal products

* A breakfast chiller

* A large cereal mug

* A tote bag

To further promote eating healthy, General Mills & MyBlogSpark provided me with a second “Grains of Goodness” prize pack to giveaway to one of my readers!

I am sure that you will LOVE this prize pack as much as I did!

Using the VIP coupons you are free to pick your favorite Big G cereals. I chose Cheerios and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

The prize pack prepares you for an amazing breakfast at home with the large cereal mug or on-the-go with the Fit N’ Fresh Breakfast Chiller!

Now you can leave those cereal bars at home and take the real thing thanks to the Fit N’ Fresh Breakfast Chiller! The top storage container keeps your cereal dry and includes an ice pack and a unique foldable spoon that snaps into the lid. The dry storage bowl holds 1.5 cups of cereal, the inner water resistant cup holds 1 cup of milk and the bottom cold storage bowl hold .75 cups of your favorite fruit! The Fit N’ Fresh Breakfast Chiller keeps your food chilled and fresh during transport. Great for any outing!

Last but not least you get a cool reusable tote bag.
