Finish Your Milk with Big G Curvy Straws {Prize Pack Review & Giveaway}

As someone who grew up loving milk, I think it took me well into my 20's before I realized that there were people that... don't.

What? How could they? It's creamy, it's delicious, it's the perfect complement to a chocolate chip cookie, and how can you even contemplate a bowl of cereal without it? For me, drinking the leftover milk after eating that cereal was never an issue. Of course I was going to pick up my bowl and slurp it down, it's good!

So, the first time I realized that my husband dumped his leftover milk instead of drinking it, I couldn't do much more than shake my head at him (after I pestered him about it). As for my kids, however, I'll do all that I can to encourage them to drink up what's left at the bottom of their cereal bowls, as it's good for their health.

If that means a little extra encouragement, then I'll give them just that — especially when it's in the form of the new Curvy Straws available in specially marked boxes of Big G cereal.

Curvy Straws

Simply by drinking the leftover milk from cereal bowls, kids can be on their way towards fulfilling their body's daily dairy, calcium, and Vitamin D needs. And what better way to get them to slurp down to the bottom of the bowl than with fun new Curvy Straws from Big G and the Whole Grain Nation?

With these collectable, connectable Curvy Straws, children of all ages can enjoy mixing and matching to build bigger, colorful straws all while helping them work towards stronger bones and muscles through increased calcium intake. There are six different colorful straws featuring beloved Big G cereal characters available, and right now you can find them in:
  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch (17 oz)
  • Lucky Charms (16 oz)
  • Reese's Puffs (18 oz)
  • Honey Nut Cheerios (17 oz)
  • Trix (14.8 oz)
  • Cocoa Puffs (16.5 oz)
Made with more whole grain than any other ingredient, Big G cereals are a great way to start the morning. As we're already big fans, when a Big G Curvy Straws Prize Pack arrived, the girls were more than excited to get to enjoy some delicious cereal with the bonus addition of Curvy Straws and a humorous Spilt Milk bowl.

Big G Curvy Straws

Whether using just one or connecting them all, the fun with Big G Curvy Straws didn't stop when my kids reached the end of the bowl. They loved the uniqueness of the silicone Spilt Milk bowl and they kept asking for another me to pour more ice cold milk in so that they could slurp away!
