Holiday Hiatus

2010 Pictures, Images and Photos

Well Happy New Year! I have decided today to end the recent break I've taken from blogging and jump back on the bandwagon.

Minor updates:
Parker - fully potty trained and hardcore into "the 3s". He loves playing Candyland, going to the YMCA and has a new found love for monster trucks. And still the most handsome little thing I've ever laid eyes on.
Joey - 3 down, 1 to go. I'm confidently saying that he will get to add those three precious letters to the end of his title soon - CPA! Plus its almost his birthday.
Me - 2nd to last semester before a B.A., still a SAHM and proud of it, looking forward to a trip up north (by myself) at the end of the month

So anyways, welcome back. Thanks for sticking around!

General Mills

This week General Mills announced a commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, and providing whole grain.

Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children’s diets.

Other cereal benefits:
  • Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children’s diets.

  • Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child’s diet today.

  • More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.
Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.
