General Mills and Curvy Straws

Hi Neighbors!

Do any of you have trouble getting your children to drink the milk in their cereal bowl?  Have you ever heard, "It is too yucky!"?  Well through My Blog Spark and General Mills I have a great solution!

Prize Pack

I received the Big G Curvy Straw Prize Pack recently.  It included:
1-box of a Big G participating cereal (I received Cocoa Puffs)
1-Curvy Straw (There was one in the cereal box too!)
1-"Spilt" Milk Bowl
2-Glow Cups
2-Tangle Toys

Now, to begin with, cereal never lasts long in my family.  So, I had to take pictures right away, or I would have missed it all.  The curvy straws are included so your child can "slurp" up the last drop of milk in their bowl!  Does it work?  Sure it does!  Just this morning, my husband asked my daughter why she was making so much noise and of course, why she was using a straw in her bowl of cereal!  She managed to drink all her milk in her bowl.  And she is the worst at leaving milk in the bowl.  By drinking the milk in the bowl your child will be working towards getting their body's daily milk, calcium and vitamin D needs fulfilled.


Slurrping her milk while wearing her tangle toys as bracelets!
There is a little button on the bottom of the cup to make it glow!

Specially marked boxes of Big G cereals will have curvy straws inside.  As they collect these, your child can then mix and match and build bigger more intricate straws, all the while encouraging them to drink their milk!

  • 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  
And that is not all! You can visit this link to download a printable coupon for $1.25 off of the purchase of (2) boxes of participating Big G cereal today!

Of course I an sure they will also enjoy the glow in the dark cups.  Mine do!

sometimes or else my grandson will tip his bowl over to drink it, usually resulting in spilling it. He is just 4

I could never ask them to do that because I think it's gross!

Shelly said...

Wee one is not fond of drinking the milk from her bowl once she has eaten the cereal (she loves lucky charms) so perhaps a fun straw would encourage her to do it!

I have no problems, since I don't have kids. But if i'm around one I usually tell them I won't play video games with them unless they finish their food.

Whether they drink the milk depends on the cereal. some cereals actually make them want the milk, like the cocoa ones.

1froglegs said...

They probably dump it down the sink when my wife isn't looking.

Missypen said...

I don't have trouble getting them to drink it ;)

KatM21 said...

Never had a problem, but I make sure not too much milk is poured to begin with. And teach them the same.

Yona Williams said...

My nephew is picky with his foods and does not finish his milk because it looks "used" - don't ask. Email: yona(at)pricelesswriters.com

russrpm said...

We have trouble keeping them from refilling the bowl three times.
russrpm@gmail.com

tranch said...

no problems

coriwestphal said...

Oh totally! What's worse is when they leave just a few pieces of cereal floating in the milk left in the bowl. You can't dump it down the sink, and you can't dump it in the garbage. You have to separate it. Annoying with a capital A!

KPort207 said...

Yes, we have problems with that here.

Crunchy Con Mommy said...

So far I can't even get my son to eat more than a few bites of cereal with milk, but maybe these fun things would help entice him. He eats enough that I know he likes it-I think he's just being silly!

Angela Cisco said...

Yes, they also don't like to finish the cereal in them either.

Karen said...

I do not have trouble, but these sound fun. Thank for the giveaway.
