Big G Cereal Whole Grain Give-Away

I was recently contacted by and given the opportunity for a review and give-away. I love cereal so this was perfect for me. To participate in this review I was sent a coupon for a free box of the new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios cereal to try. All the product was sent to me from General Mills through
This cereal is fantastic. Cherrios is a great cereal anyway, but the different varieties allow me to have different flavors of one of my favorites, and the Cinnamon Burst hits the spot. Cinnamon is a delicious ingredient the cereal. And this one is made with REAL cinnamon, not cinnamon flavoring. This cereal has 20% of your daily fiber needed!

According to the 2010 Report of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, only five percent of Americans get the three full recommended daily servings – a shocking statistic.

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.

Only whole grain gives you the vital nutrients from the complete grain. The health benefits of whole grains can’t be pinpointed to one particular component of the grain. It’s the “whole grain package” that makes the difference. In addition to fiber, whole grain contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients that help ensure a healthy diet. A diet high in whole grain has been found to help with diabetes and weight management, and it may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.

Get into the whole grain habit by just looking for the big white check on Big G cereals! Cereal is already one of the healthiest breakfast choices you can make, and the entire Big G cereal line is made with whole grain, making it a great choice. Big G cereals have the brands and flavor your family will love, including Cheerios®, Lucky Charms®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Honey Nut Cheerios®, Fiber One® and Total®.

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

To help you get more fiber in your diet, General Mills has also given me one prize pack to give away to one of my lucky readers! 

In this prize pack you will receive a VIP coupon for one Big G cereal, a cereal on-the-go bowl, lunch bag, walking enthusiast kit and a digital jump rope. 
I absolutely love my gift pack! It is really going to make things a little bit easier for me when I have to have breakfast on the go and help me get in shape. Your prize package will come straight from General Mills.
Contest ends on 2/10/2011 at 12 NOON EST. I will need a valid email address as I will email the winner who will then have 48 hours to respond with their mailing information. If not received in 48 hours I will choose another winner. Winner will be selected by

Good luck to everyone!

I received all product from General Mills through, however the opinions stated in this post are my own.

Have a Blessed day/night,
