Have you tried looking for a good cereal for your kids? By good, I mean healthy. I remember growing up with fruity loops, puffs of all kinds, and tons of other great sugary breakfast cereals. You can find those at your grocery store, they’re there, as tasty as ever, except most of them are bad for you.
Well, option one is to make your own. I have no idea how to make a good cereal, other than the granola type. That recipe shows you how to do it if you want to give it a try. But we’re not talking about that today. Option two is to find a good alternative to the crappy cereals that are out there.
Healthier & Delicious
We found them! I want to show you two of Claire’s favorites. These are delicious, even I eat them. Claire asks for them and she’ll have a bowl or two with milk or sometimes we just fill a small container so she can snack for a bit.
I’m talking about the Naturespath cereals for kids. We found these at Sprouts, but you can find them at many other retailers.
I’m not sure if the big chains like Krogers, Vons, Albertsons etc, carry them but if you have a Mother’s Market, Sprouts, or other “healthier” grocery stores around you can probably find them there or just request them.
You can get them from Amazon on those links, actually at a better price than I found at the store. Claire really loves these… watch the short video we made during breakfast the other day.
We like them because it gives us peace of mind that we’re not stuffing Claire with crap and sugar. They are slightly more expensive than their counterparts but it’s worth it to pay now for a healthy option instead of paying later for health problems. Right?
But wait, there’s more!
One of the things I really liked as a kid was doing the puzzles and interactive activities that come in the back of cereal boxes. These cereal boxes come with those too. Except now that I’m a parent, I think I like these boxes better than the ones I remember when I was a kid. They are more educational.
For a toddler like Claire it doesn’t really matter. She likes pictures and animals and fun stuff. She’s in a phase where she relates everyone to “mommy” “daddy” or “me” as you can see in the video so the colorful boxes are really good to entertain her and let her explore.
If only breakfast was this easy every day…
