General Mills Cereal- Cinnamon Toast Crunch Review

We LOVE cereal in the Derrick household. One of my very favorite cereals is Cinnamon Toast Crunch. So imagine how excited I was to get home tonight and find a box of it on my doorstep! Yes! I was going to wait until tomorrow morning to have a bowl, but it was just calling my name. I had to have some. So I just finished my delicious bowl of cereal and figured that I would let you all know how good it was.

Did you know that cereal is one of the most nutritious breakfast options a kid can eat? Most cereals have about 100 – 130 calories per serving and provide at least 10 key nutrients. And, ready-to-eat cereal is the number one source of whole grain in American diets. Sara Rose LOVES cereal for breakfast, it is one of the items that she will eat on a pretty regular basis.

You know what I just found out? The American Academy of Pediatrics recently doubled the vitamin D recommendation for children. That means that approximately 75% of kids today don’t get the recommended levels of calcium and vitamin D -- two key nutrients for bone growth. All General Mills Big G kid cereals (including Kix, Lucky Charms, Trix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and more) offer a good source of BOTH calcium and vitamin D in each serving.

Additionally, a recent report in a leading consumer magazine ranked kid cereals by nutritional content, and all nine General Mills Big G kid cereals included in the report were ranked in the top half. All Big G kid cereals have at least eight grams of whole grain per serving (at least 48 grams are recommended daily), and all have 12 grams or less of sugar per serving.
