Mix Ins

My kids really enjoy sugared cereals. We used to buy them for special occasions and they somehow made their way into our normal routine. But the Mama-voice-of-reason says that we need more fiber and less sugar. So I came up with a new way our family eats cereal.

First, we use our base cereal. Plain cheerios. Not much sugar and some soluble fiber. Next we get to choose a sugared cereal as a topping. My favorite is Reese's Puffs. Yum! The cheerios seem to take on the flavor of the sugared cereal, yet everybody's bowl is about three-fourths toasted oats and one-fourth "bad" stuff. (SHHH! don't tell my kids!) I hope you enjoy this tip!
