Kix Cereal Review & GIVEAWAY

"When it comes to starting off your day right, a new survey from Kix found that 84 percent of parents turn to cereal with milk for a quick and healthy breakfast.

Cereal is one of the healthiest breakfast choices parents can make. Ready-to-eat cereal has fewer calories than almost any other common breakfast option, while also being nutrient-dense and convenient. In addition, cereal eaters consume less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters.

With the same great taste kids have loved for more than 70 years, Kix makes it easy to serve your family a simple and healthy breakfast! Whether you choose to serve Original Kix or Honey Kix, you can be sure that your kids are getting a wholesome food with nutrients they need to grow.

The "Kid-Tested Mother-Approved®"cereal is made with whole grain corn and is an excellent source of iron. It also is a good source of calcium, fiber, and Vitamins C and D. Original Kix has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

My kids were so excited when our review prize pack arrived. It included a 24-piece counting-themed floor puzzle, fun learn-to-count flashcards, a sippy cup, a portable snack container and a box each of Original Kix and Honey Kix cereal. The boys were already fans of Kix cereal but had not tried the Honey Kix Cereal before. They love it! They both like it as a snack without milk too. J was thrilled with the floor puzzle as well. He's put that thing together countless times and he's even nice enough to let L play with it sometimes too.

One random Oh My Baby reader will WIN their own prize pack including all the same items we received. Leave your comment by 11:59 pm EST on December 17th. U.S. addresses only please

Betty Crocker Instant Mashed Potatoes Review & GIVEAWAY

I had a rough afternoon. It started with my own doctor's appointment then L came down with a 103 degree fever. Needless to say, back to the doctor's office. By the time I got home that day, I had less than an hour before Dear Hubby was coming home from work to make dinner. I threw some chicken breasts on the grill but was at a loss for any sides. Luckily I had just received a Betty Crocker gift pack that included two instant mashed potatoes. I normally make mashed potatoes from scratch and that can take some time.

I whipped up the creamy butter flavored instant mashed potatoes. The process was so simple. Boiling the water was the longest step. My potatoes took a little less than 10 mins from start to finish. The potatoes were creamy, buttery and tasted homemade.

Betty Crocker's instant mashed potatoes are made with 100% real potatoes. They come in a variety of flavors such as Creamy Butter, Roasted Garlic and Au Gratin.

One Oh My Baby reader will WIN a prize pack that includes two boxes of Betty Crocker Boxed Instant Mashed Potatoes (one Roasted Garlic and one Homestyle Creamy Butter), a serving bowl, a trivet and a serving spoon. Leave your comment by 11:59pm EST on December 1, 2010. U.S. addresses only please.

The “Teacher Monday” program was designed to take some of the burden off teachers, many who pay for school supplies out of their own pockets. It will also provide teachers with tools and incentives to incorporate healthy eating messages into their curriculums, giving us an opportunity to help school children eat and live healthier,” Christou added.

The 50 selected Central American schools will also receive $1,000 each for school supplies.

“By linking U.S. and Central American schools, we want to help further the education of students by introducing them to another culture. Our hope is that sister schools will communicate with each other about fun physical activities and their favorite fruit dishes,” said Christou.
