Big G Giveaway

 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 trying 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®.
 
       One of my lucky followers is going to win all this stuff
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 have to say I was very surprised at how good the cereal is, I was eating it right out of the box when I got it home and I was having everyone try it. My kids had some friends over and I even had them try it and yes the whole box was gone in about 1/2 hour with out even using milk. I have since bought 2 more boxes and my family loves it.

Now for your chance to win the yummy box of cereal along with all the other cool stuff all you have to do is follow a couple simple rules

*Mandatory entry is be a- public follower  = 1 entry
   *Tell me how you might incorporate more whole grain in to your diet? = 1entry 
*Which of your favorite Big G cereals do you like to start your day off? = 1 entry
  Please leave your email address with your entry so i can notify the winner I will pick the winner on 2/28/11 and they will have 48 hrs to contact me or I will have to pick someone else

( The coupon, prize pack, information and giveaway were all provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.)

We're trying to add more whole grains by replacing white pasta and breads with healthier options like wheat and quinoa.

I've really been checking labels lately - especially on cereal where it's easiest to incorporate whole grains. I've also started to bake more of our bread and I try to pack as many whole grains as possible into them.
