17 Creative Ways to Use Cereal – Breakfast to Dinner

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” – Lewis Carroll, Adventure’s of Alice in Wonderland… Ah, mornings. I remember back in a previous life, when breakfast meant coffee and a bagel on the way out to a hectic day in sales. Mornings with kids are quite different – and know many a day where I’ve seen and heard at least six impossible things before breakfast! I have a 3 year-old who is quite wild in the mornings – and my nephews {7 & 10} are here every day during the summer, and every morning during the school year. So, I definitely need an affordable breakfast option that is quick to eat – but still healthy for these growing kiddos.

Breakfast at home makes cents

Breakfast at home makes “cents”

Most kids love cereal – everyone has their favorites. {Heck, I love cereal sometimes as a night time snack.} And in our house most of those favorite cereals come from General Mills – Trix, Cheerios, Chex, Lucky Charms, Total, and on and on. Cereal is always a super affordable choice for breakfast – how often can you spend less than $4 bucks and get around 10 breakfasts on the table? So if you’re not already choosing cereal in the mornings, it’s time to wake up your usual routine, and take the Breakfast at Home Savings Challenge! Just head to the site, and either clip and print, or load coupons directly to your digital grocery cards and save big on all of your favorite breakfast brands. Because being a frugal momma is always a smart move.

17 Creative Ways to Use Cereal

We eat cereal all day in my house. I love that most of the General Mills choices are now made with whole grains, and many are packed with fiber, iron, and other vitamins growing kids need. And, since cereal is so affordable, I love using it for snacks and treats too. Check out a few of my favorite ideas:
