My kids really like drinking the leftover milk from their cereal bowls because by the time they're done eating their cereal, the milk has already been flavored with the bits of fruit and flavoring that were in the cereal. That milk is a big part of their daily calcium intake, so I don't care whether they spoon the milk into their mouths or simple bring the bowl to their lips and slurp away, as long as they're getting all that milk!
General Mills wants to help your kids get more milk into their bodies, so their latest promo features fun Curvy Straws inside specially marked boxes of Big G cereal. We received a prize package from them with a box of Honey Nut Cheeries (with a Curvy Straw inside), a cute bowl, a pair of plastic glasses and a second Curvy Straw, and my kids are having lots of fun connect the straws together to sip their milk up.
Here's more information about the promo:
Did you know that simply drinking the leftover milk from cereal bowls may help kids work towards fulfilling their body’s daily dairy, calcium, and Vitamin D needs? And what better way to slurp down to the bottom of the bowl than with the new Curvy Straws, available in-pack of specially marked boxes of Big G cereal! With these collectable, connectable Curvy Straws, children of all ages can enjoy mixing and matching to build bigger, colorful straws all while helping them work towards stronger bones and muscles through increased calcium intake!
Be sure to collect all six different colorful straws featuring beloved Big G cereal characters
Participating Big G cereals include Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (17 oz.), Lucky Charms®(16 oz.), Reese’s® Puffs (18 oz.), Honey Nut Cheerios® (17 oz.), Trix®(14.8 oz) and Cocoa Puffs® (16.5 oz)
Made with more whole grain than any other ingredient, Big G cereal, combined with a ½ cup of milk, can help provide a great start to your family’s day
Whether you use one or connect them all, the fun with Big G Curvy Straws doesn’t have to stop when you reach the end of the bowl. Simply grab another serving of ice cold milk, and slurp away!
