General Mills Giveaway

UPDATE: Giveaway is over!  Winner is Eunice!  I used to choose the winner!

MyBlogSpark and General Mills have teamed up to bring you a great giveaway!  General Mills have introduced a great new flavor of Cheerios called Cinnamon Burst Cheerios and they are quite delicious.  My boys enjoyed them as did I.  A cereal that we can agree on is not to be taken lightly!

From Big G "With many Americans making New Year’s Resolutions to live healthier, it’s never been easier to get the whole grain you want without sacrificing taste. Every Big G cereal contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving, with more than 20 General Mills cereals delivering 16 grams or more. (At least 48 grams of whole grain are recommended daily.) Big G cereals are America’s number one source of whole grain at breakfast, providing America with more whole grain at breakfast than any other breakfast food from any other manufacturer."

Let's face it - cereal is quick, easy and something the children like.  So consider trying the new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios or choose another Big G cereal.  To be sure the other foods you are choosing have the healthy whole grain you need, just follow these two easy rules:

1. Look for a whole grain symbol like the big white check on Big G cereals or the Whole Grain Stamp developed by the Whole Grains Council

2. Scan the ingredient list and choose foods that list a whole grain near the top of the list

Visit for more tips, additional information about the benefits of Whole Grain and how Big G cereals can be a convenient and tasty way to incorporate more whole grain into your day.

I have a great prize pack to offer you to help fulfill healthy living goals, including a VIP coupon for one Big G cereal, a cereal on-the-go bowl, lunch bag, walking enthusiast kit and a digital jump rope.  To enter, simply leave a comment and tell me how will you incorporate more whole grain into your diet -OR- with which of your favorite Big G cereals do you like to start your day off?

One entry per person, please leave an email address if your account is not already attached to your email address.  Contest ends at midnight March 15.

The coupon, prize pack, information and giveaway were all provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.


  1. Breakfast is a great way to incorporate grains into your diet. Personally I love Honey Nut Cheerios - definitely my favorite! Krogers had a great sale on the new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios this week, and when I put this together with a coupon I had, I got a box of them for about $1.60 :) Happy Me! And I love them too! I wish I had got more!

  2. I put a lot of whole grains into things like muffins and breads to incorporate them into our daily diet. We would love to use the coupon on any Chex cereal as they are gluten-free and husband has celiac disease. He is so excited to be able to eat "normal people" cereal! Thanks for the chance.
