General Mills Giveaway!

Closed Now
Did you know that studies have found that a diet rich in whole grain can be helpful in maintaining a healthy heart, managing weight and may also reduce the risk for diabetes and certain types of cancer?


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. General Mills is the only leading cereal company to guarantee whole grain in every box.** Every day, General Mills’ Big G Cereals - which include Cheerios, Fiber One, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Chex, Total and Lucky Charms - deliver 35 million servings of whole grain to Americans. General Mills makes it easy to find whole grains, just look for the white check on the top of every Big G cereal box for your whole grain guarantee.

In a national survey, 91 percent of Americans said they want to incorporate more whole grain foods into their diets. In fact, nine out of 10 people in the U.S. still do not eat the minimum recommended daily amount of whole grain (at least three servings, or 48 grams). Do you? Why not start keeping track of how many whole grains you eat to find out?

In addition to sharing the good news about whole grain, we’re excited to announce some more great news for cereal lovers. Just last month General Mills announced a commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single-digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, and providing whole grain.

We love Genearal Mills products in my household. Cheerios in the big yellow box has been a staple atop our refrigerator for years. we eat it with milk and honey drizzled on top. A wise friend told me once that Cheerios are the perfect snack food for children because the hole in the middle reduces the risk of choking and won't block the airway. For whole grains we enjoy the multigrain Cherios,whole grain breads,granola bars, brown rice or brown basmati rice and oatmeal. If I could create a healthy and nutritious whole grain cereal I would include almonds,oatmeal,granola and raisins.

We eat whole grain cereals and breads all the time. I always tell my kids when they ask for the junk cereals that I would not let you eat candy for breakfast.

This is a great giveaway! I get whole grains by eating oat bran or oatmeal for breakfast every day, sometimes as a snack too. I also like bran flakes mixed with Honey Nut Cheerios to add a little sweetness.

My perfect healthy & whole grain cereal would be shredded wheat, puffed rice, dried cherries, and sunflower seeds... though that sounds more like a trail mix, doesn't it?
