Remarkably the other day this was the conversation in my home.
Husband: I did not like the new cereal.
Me: It was on sale. I thought we might try it.
Husband: You can’t beat Cheerio’s.
Me: (thinking um, next time I stick you with the grocery shopping detail)
Fine, I’ll try to find you some later.
Then out of the clear blue a package of Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerio’s and Oatmeal Crisp arrived. Not even two hours after this conversation. For a brief moment I truly thought my home was bugged.
Husband is a fitness junkie these days and refuses to eat sugary cereals. He has been buying Cheerios for years and steadfastly maintains that routine. Typically we don’t mess much with routine around here. Youngest daughter loves Honey Nut Cheerio’s more than any other brand – or flavour of the month. Point is: we’ve been eating these cereals for many years and we know they are good for you, but until recently I didn’t pay much attention to the greening of the box.
See that green banner? It stands for good health.
Because oat fibre helps lower your cholesterol. Heart disease is a leading cause of death in Canada. Nine out of 10 Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease. So healthy eating and diet are truly important to everyone.
General Mills now has the green banner on three of their cereals. Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerio’s and Oatmeal Crisp. So look for the green banner and fight heart disease.
And that Oatmeal Crisp is fabulous and tasty too.
Yes, my kids are hams. They like their cereal.
I like how healthy it is.
