Not too many cereals have surprises in them anymore. I remember as a kid always looking forward to the prize, even though I’d have to share with my brother and sister. We’d take turns getting to keep the surprises but I remember the best part was always finding the surprise.
In an effort to get kids to drink more of their cereal milk and to keep kids happy, Big G (General Mills) cereals have a new surprise! Now, in specially marked boxes of Big G cereals, your kids can find colorful, collectable, connectable Curvy Straws. Believe me, they are so much fun that your kids will want to collect all 6! And with fun cereal flavors like Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Lucky Charms®, Reese’s® Puffs, Honey Nut Cheerios®, Trix® and Cocoa Puffs®, I’m sure it’ll be no problem for your kids to eat through enough boxes to complete their collection!
Get Kids to Drink More Milk with Curvy Straws
We even enjoy Big G cereals as a special snack before bedtime too! My kids love those nights! Getting my kids to eat the cereal is easy, but drinking the leftover milk can be difficult. Did you know that the simple step of finishing that leftover milk could help work towards getting your body’s daily intake of dairy, calcium, and Vitamin D?
I know we especially struggle with this for my daughter, who doesn’t enjoy drinking milk. It has always been a rule that she must drink all the cereal milk. That can end in a mess, but with the fun curvy straws, she thinks it is fun!
Plus, as your kids collect the straws, they can connect them and build exciting long straws that curvy all over the place! Who knew that breakfast and drinking milk could be so fun! 🙂 Any trick to get my kids the calcium they need for stronger bones and muscle is worth it. For us, we have the rule that these straws can only be used for milk – that goes for cereal milk and glasses of milk. Check out these fun Glow Cups that we received for this promotion. Kids love drinking from them!
