Good nutrition starts with milk and whole grains. {giveaway}

Do your kids eat whole grain cereal for breakfast? Do they finish the milk in the bowl or do they leave it on the kitchen table as they dash for the bus? Did you know that simply drinking the leftover milk from cereal bowls may help them work towards fulfilling their body’s daily dairy, calcium, and Vitamin D needs?

Sounds simple right?

In select boxes of whole grain Big G cereals from General Mills, you’ll find collectable, connectable Curvy Straws, that you can use to slurp your way to better nutrition! Whether you build a simple straw or something crazy, it’s a great way to start your day. And don’t worry, we won’t tell if the big kids get in on the fun too!

The fun straws and cool bowl definitely made it more exciting to finish the milk at the bottom of the bowl in our house. That’s a good thing, because in theory, it also keeps the cat off the kitchen table because she’s not tempted to poach milk from the cereal bowl. 🙂
