The Morning Crunch

Legalese Disclosure Nonsense: We were provided with free cereal (yum) in exchange for this post. All hungry boys, delish recipes, and midnight cereal cravings are our own.

It’s one of my husbands favorite days today! National Cereal Day! We often joke that one of our favorite parts of being adults is being able to eat cereal any time we want, even in bed at midnight.

Breakfast ~ Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends

Sometimes I think that Amber is my exact ‘mini me’ and then others I see parts of her Daddy peeking through! Take, for example, her love of breakfast! Both of my kids favorite meal of the day is breakfast–which they definitely get from their Daddy! Being that I’m a “mean mommy” (or at least my mom-in-law informs me that I am) there are no hyped up sugar funky color artificial dyed cereals to be found in our house. Instead my kids have grown up on “grown up” cereal–and love and eat it!

I do want to give them something with a little bit of sweetness and flavor, however, so I often opt for cereals that have a little bit of “fun” in them–like the new Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends. With crispy mango and crunchy coconut the kids got very excited and were literally jumping up and down when I pulled it out of the cupboard (yes, I’m lucky–my kids are that easy to please!) And with 10g of Whole Grain, 120 Calories, and 6g of sugar it’s something that Mommy can jump up and down about too!

So how did they like it? I literally had to tell Amber, “Sweetie don’t eat your breakfast yet because Mommy needs to take a picture of it first.” By the time I got around to taking pictures for this post the box was nearly empty! (actually they just polished it off this morning-time to go buy some more!)


 A bowl full of cereal and either an orange or a banana give my kiddos a easy, healthy breakfast that will help fuel their busy little bodies through the day!
