Serve a Quick and Nutritious Breakfast with Kix {Review}

I don't think there are too many parents out there that don't want to pass along healthy habits and good nutrition to their children. We all wish for our kids to grow up strong and fit and have every intention of doing the best that we can to provide them the nourishment that they need to get there.

However... it's hard sometimes. With work and busy schedules and the amount of rushing that happens in the mornings, we also need simple solutions that will provide the nutritional needs for our kids' growing bodies. But let's not forget about taste - after all, children like mine will make it known if they think their meal resembles cardboard (and that just leads to no one eating).

So what is there that makes everyone happy? Cereal, of course! Data published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association shows frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights - including kids. And one of the cereals that has always been well-received around here by the whole family is none other than Kix.

Made out of eight all-natural ingredients, Kix contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives but instead is a great source of iron, calcium, fiber and vitamins C and D. Having been around for more than 70 years, Kix has the same flavor and unique texture that kids of all ages enjoy as it did when General Mills first introduced it back in 1937.

So, the combination of the whole grains and healthy ingredients with the light, fluffy, tasty puffed corn is what has really made Kix to be "Kid-Tested Mother-Approved" in our home. In fact, both Big Sister E and Little Sister B are happy to start the day off with a big bowlful...

The only problem we've ever encountered? When breakfast is over, I always seem to find stray Kix on the floor that have rolled off of my girls' spoons. I'm not sure how they get down there, but fortunately their taste is always enough that the clean-up process is no problem.

Head over to General Mills to check out Kix and their other wide variety of delicious and nutritious cereals and start your family's day off right with a healthy breakfast everyone will love!

(Other than the information and boxes of Kix that I was sent, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my opinion of this tasty cereal.)
