CLOSED: General Mills Grains of Goodness Review and Giveaway

Since my weight loss / healthy lifestyle change started in January there are certain things I have became very aware of such as the importance of eating a healthy breakfast. One brand of cereal stood out in my campaign and that was General Mills. Not because I was asked to do this post, but because I enjoy their cereal. Finding out it was a healthy, whole grain choice was a bonus.

Did you know that General Mills' Big G cereals guarantee whole grains in every box? See the big white check mark at the top of the box? That is their guarantee. You can learn more about how healthy the Big G cereals are at the Whole Grain Nation website. I love knowing that not only are their cereals yummy (that's directly from my son), but they are good for my children. From their site: Only whole grain gives you the vital nutrients from the complete grain. In addition to fiber, whole grain contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients important for a healthy diet. Doesn't that make you feel good as a parent? I know it makes me feel good. In addition last month General Mills announced a commitment to reduce their sugar in their cereals geared toward children under 12.

General Mills is giving one lucky read a "Grains of Goodness" Prize Pack featuring:

  • 2 VIP coupons for Big G cereal products
