Cereal is by far my family’s favorite food. Ok, maybe it doesn’t quite beat out cookies, but it’s a close second. Because it’s so versatile, healthy cereal, like Honey Bunches of Oats with 33g of whole grains, is something I feel good about giving to my family to eat for breakfast (obviously), but also dinner when we’re going 100 miles a minute to soccer or gymnastics or back from Dad’s house and there simply isn’t time for a hot meal.
Plus, it’s great for an after school snack or for when it’s almost bedtime and they decide they are still hungry – a quick bowl of cereal fits the bill perfectly.
It satisfies my need to feel good about the food I put into their growing bodies too.
Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch per serving:

Serving Size: 1 Cup
Provides 12 essential vitamins and minerals
5g protein per serving
Honestly, Honey Bunches of Oats has been our family’s go-to cereal for awhile now. Yes, my kids are normal (relatively speaking of course) and ask for cereals that more closely resemble the colors in a crayon box than real food. But a couple of years ago we found the Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds and that is now the family favorite.
Seriously, I can’t keep a box in the house for more than 2 days before it’s gone.
So, of course I jumped at the chance to try the Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch version (made with two granolas, whole grain flakes, greek yogurt, and honey). Here’s what they had to say:
My 11 year old “It’s really good! Sweet and healthy.”
My 8 year old “Grandma makes it the best!”
Really, son? There’s a certain way to make cereal? Apparently sliced strawberries and bananas are Grandma’s secret recipe in case you were wondering…
My 5 year old “It makes the milk taste good.”
If you haven’t tried Honey Bunches of Oats, I highly recommend it – especially if you’re looking for a go-to cereal that will make your family smile and make you feel good about the food you’re giving them.
