Kellogg’s “Start Simple, Start Right” Campaign


My family and I participated in the  Kellogg’s “Start Simple, Start Right” Campaign.  Kelloggs sent us 1 box of each of the following cereals:

My kids and I start every morning off with a wholesome and simple breakfast by eating a bowl of cereal.  It tastes great, fills us up and doesn’t contain tons of fat and calories like a pan full of cinnamon rolls or other pre-packaged breakfast foods.  Cereal works well with our budget and our family loves it, so it is a win-win for us.  My youngest son and I even have another bowl of cereal after school together while we talk about his school day and look through his homework assignments.  My husband doesn’t have time for cereal in the mornings, but he loves to eat cereal at night time.  You can imagine the boxes of cereal you would find at our house.  Think about all those huge cereal sales you see at the grocery.  You may find me in the isle with at least 10 boxes during those large sales.  We all like to eat cereal, but we all have different flavor preferences so I buy cereal in bulk when I find a great sale!  Once I bought so much cereal that I ran out of cabinet space and had a neighbor recommend that I start storing it under my bed!  The cereal never went under the bed, but I did have to start controlling myself at these sales until I could make more space in the pantry for all my great buys!

I also like to eat cereal when I am counting my Weight Watchers points.  It keeps my daily points low and keeps my stomach from growling and longing for high calorie sweets.  I like to buy the cereal that my family prefers instead of focusing totally on fiber, fat, and calories.  Face it, I’d rather them eat a bowl of cereal than a prepacked snack cake which doesn’t fill them up and “calls” them back to the pantry for more.  As for myself, I do purchase both healthy cereals and cereals that I’d call “kid favorites” like Kellog’s Fruit Loops with Marshmallows.  I don’t know about you, but I love the marshmallows!

When I am on a “healthy” shopping spree, I always take note of calories, fat content, fiber and protein when checking out new foods.

I have to say that out of the 5 boxes of cereal that Kelloggs sent my family:

  • I used the All Bran and Corn Flakes to make my favorite Blueberry Banana Bran Muffins
  • My husband is eating  the Raisin Bran
  • The Gluten Free Rice Krispies are all mine
  • I plan on using the Rice Krispies for homemade Rice Krispie Treats

What types of cereal do you purchase for your family?  What kind of cereal does your family prefer?  Does your family eat cereal on a regular basis?
