Cheerios™ has always been a favorite of mine. Growing up, there was constantly a bright and cheery yellow box in my Mom’s pantry and now I keep them in my own kitchen for Taylor. She has enjoyed them since she was a toddler. I used to tote around baggies filled with Cheerios™ for her in my diaper bag as her “on the go snack”. They hold a special place in my heart.
Recently, Cheerios™ launched a new campaign with Walmart called “Buy a Box. Give a Free Box.” For a limited time, certain packages of Cheerios™ are exclusively available at Walmart that have a blue ribbon sticker on the front that contains a unique code that can be used to send someone a free box of Cheerios ™!
After purchasing a box, you simply peel back the sticker to reveal a single use code that can be used to send a free box to a friend.
It is really easy to redeem your code online. You start by visiting their website.
Then, you click on the blue “give a box” button and enter your information, the code from your sticker and your recipient’s information.
I chose to share my free box with my friend (and fellow blogger) Tiffany from http://livingsweetmoments.com. She is also a member of the Collective Bias community and a VERY talented cook. Her recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies makes my mouth water! I wish she lived closer so I could pop by her house for dinner (or dessert) sometimes but at least I can send her some breakfast thanks to General Mills. 🙂
Speaking of breakfast…now that school is back in session I have been making it a point to get up earlier and sit down to eat in the morning with Taylor. As she gets older she is busier with homework and extracurricular activities and I want to take advantage of this opportunity to spend quality time together. I think it is important to start the day fresh with a yummy meal together. It doesn’t have to be anything difficult or fancy. The other day I made these awesome breakfast parfaits. They only took me a few minutes and they were delicious!
I started out by washing fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Next, I sliced up the strawberries. Then, I put a layer of Cheerios™ at the bottom of my glass. I layered on some fat free vanilla yogurt and fruit and kept alternating between the cereal, yogurt and berries until I reached the top.
These have easily become one of our favorite breakfast treats. The crunchy cereal is such a nice compliment to the sweet yogurt and tangy berries.
Do you have a favorite breakfast treat that you make for your kids on school days? If so, please share it in the comments. I am always looking for something delicious.
