With three (soon to be four) kids in the house, we go through our fair share of food. Breakfast is usually mentioned by one of the kids within minutes of their little feet hitting the floor. While we usually start our mornings with a warm home cooked breakfast, with this pregnancy, I have found it to be more of a challenge. Eating cereal is the norm for most families, however for my children, they would prefer it to be an afternoon snack.
One of the few cereals I can get them all to agree on in the mornings is Multi-Grain Cheerios™. They have just a hint of sweetness with just the right crunch. It’s one of the cereals I remember eating regularly as a kid with my own siblings.
Sometimes it can be challenging to think of simple snacks that all the kids can enjoy together, so I couldn’t be more excited to share them with my sister and her children.
Even more exciting is that there is a fun way I can share the news with her. Cheerios™ has just launched their “Buy a Box. Give a Free Box.” campaign with specially marked boxes found exclusively at Walmart.
Each box of Cheerios™ has a unique code found on the outside of the box that you can enter online to give an e-card and mail a coupon for a free box of Cheerios™ to a recipient of your choice! In my case, it was my sister.
The process was super simple! Simply visit: Walmart.com/Cheerios and enter your code.
Enter your information for your e-card.
Enter your personal message then select the image for your e-card and hit send!
Once they receive the e-card they will simply enter their information and will receive a coupon for a free, family sized box of Cheerios™ box.
My mother was always creative when it came to fun ways to eat cereal. Many times she would use it in cookies, as some type of crust or coating on baked goods and my favorite was simple snack mixes.
Just as my mother would have us help her in the kitchen, the kids had fun selecting what they wanted added to our snack mix. We selected Multi-Grain Cheerios™, peanuts, raisins, dried cranberries and dark chocolate chips.
I made simple snack cones from scrapbook paper and wrapped them with a simple ribbon.
Then the kids had fun filling up their cones.
Neither of the older two kids love raisins, so they offered them to Bethany and she was more than eager to accept all the donations from her brother and sister.
It was a super simple, wholesome snack to throw together, perfect for a busy afternoon.
