"Mommy Snack!" That is a normal request in our home now that Teagan is learning to speak her mind all the time. Now that request wouldn't be a big deal for most but this little lady is pretty picky when it comes to any food. Thanks to Kellogg's Frosted Flakes I can give her a "snack" that she loves! We have always had Frosted Flakes in our home for morning cereal but now we find ourselves using it for more than our morning pick me up!
Before bedtime I find my kids are always needing a little Good. Night. Snack. to get them ready for bed, especially during growth spurts! Our family is big on routines so we always start getting Jude and Teagan ready for bed at the same time. On nights that we get asked for a "Snack" we get their pajamas on and let them have their Frosted Flakes.
Did you notice Teagan? Yes, she is sitting in her baby doll stroller, happens to be a perfect Good. Night. Snack. seat for her. She makes us laugh!
I feel good about these snacks and know that my kids like them too. So many people think that cereal can only be eaten at breakfast in a bowl of milk! Wrong!! We enjoy Kellogg's Cereal at all times of the day.
Our family attends church every Sunday morning. Goodness knows we have to pack snacks to get through the service and most Sunday's I pack up individual bags of Frosted Flakes to not only feed the kiddos a wholesome breakfast on the go but also let them enjoy a snack that they love. Kellogg's makes packing on the go easy. Don't you love our reusable "ziplock" bags? I love using these for our cereal snacks.
Jude has always called Frosted Flakes "Tiger Food!" Ha! That is a testament to marketing working well! Jude likes to enjoy his "Tiger Food" for his movie and TV time. Anytime we have a big family movie night we allow the kids to choose something to snack on just like we would do if we were going to the theater. Jude chooses his "Tiger Food" 95% of the time. Now that I am thinking about this, instead of spending 8 dollars on some candy at the theater I think I will pack "Tiger Food" instead. Help me remember that okay? Brilliant idea to save some money and still have a fun day at the theater!
Okay, we have talked out the kiddos needing a yummy Good. Night. Snack. at bed or even a movie night treat but we haven't talked about the adults. I ADORE eating Frosted Flakes at anytime of the day but opening that box of "Tiger Food" after the kids are in bed I am sitting down to watch some TV with the hubs makes my evening complete. There is some nostalgia with enjoying any of the Kellogg's cereal, don't you think? It takes me back to Saturday morning cartoon watching in the living room as a child. Good memories = good food!
Sometimes instead of just eating the cereal like popcorn I like to be a little more sophisticated with it! Ha! I love enjoying some yogurt and fruit with my Frosted Flakes before bed. The sweet treat makes me full but not too full and I get the balanced nutrition from the yogurt, fruit and whole grain cereal. Yum!
