Our Family's Cereal Habit


This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.



Alfie is a creature of habit. He drinks tea six or seven times a day, and he always snacks on walnuts, cheese and blueberries. Every morning he turns the tv on to wake himself up. Then he does some yoga poses and takes a shower. And almost every single day of his life, he eats a bowl of cereal and milk for breakfast.

While I prefer more variety in my morning meal, I've had no problem fostering Alfie's cereal habit in my kids (hey, mornings are hectic, and the less breakfast preparation involved, the better for me). We just buy an array of cereals so everyone can pick and choose what they like, and no-one has to get bored eating the same kind of cereal every day. Our cereal cupboard looks like a United Nations of cereals, with no two alike (I store duplicates in a higher cupboard because there isn't enough room).



Since I'm participating in the Kellogg's BlogHer program, I thought it would be fun to ask each member of the family which Kellogg's cereals they like best. As I suspected, I got wildly different answers from each one:

Alfie
Cocoa Krispies
Special K Red Berries
Smorz
Bonggamom
Special K Blueberry
Frosted Mini-Wheats Strawberry Delight
Frosted Mini-Wheats Little Bites Chocolate

The Pea
Corn Pops
Frosted Flakes
Frosted Mini-Wheats Little Bites Chocolate

Jammy
Raisin Bran
Special K Fruit & Yogurt
Corn Pops

3Po
Rice Krispies
Special K Chocolatey Delight
Corn Pops

Well, maybe not that different. 3Po and Jammy both love Special K and Corn Pops, but then again, they're twins. All the kids love Corn Pops, which is funny because I only buy it when my mom comes to visit; she adores Corn Pops -- eats it as morning, noon and night-- and I guess she passed on her love of Corn Pops to her grandchildren! Hmmm, I think they should do some research on whether love of cereal is hereditary :) I wonder what kinds of Kellogg's cereals my grandchildren will be eating?

Whatever cereal makes you smile, try sprinkling some Bonggamom Finds on top!

I like several cereals--however, I don't ever eat cereal with milk for breakfast (although I've been known to eat Rice Krispie Marshmallow Treats or Peanut Butter Cereal (Corn Flakes or Special K) Bars for breakfast)! My favorite cereal is Kellogg's® All-Bran® Complete® Wheat Flakes cereal and I also enjoy eating Crispix dry, as a snack.
