Cereal Is Great Any Time Of The Day

When is your favorite time of the day to eat cereal?  Do you only eat it for breakfast or are you an equal opportunity cereal eater?  My kids and I love to eat Kellogg’s cereal any time of the day.  They eat it for breakfast, of course.

However, they enjoy eating Kellogg’s cereal for lunch too!

Cereal is so easy to pack in their lunch boxes.  It is a nice change of pace from a peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  I love that you can easily add shelf stable milk to their lunch boxes, or you can just order cold milk from your school’s  lunch program (which is what I choose to do).

I don’t even mind pouring myself a bowl of cereal for lunch also.  I love that cereal follows the rule of 3 for the meals too - a fruit (which you can add on top of your cereal), a grain (the cereal) and a protein (milk)!  Cereal is easy to eat at home and on the go!  We have even been known to eat breakfast for dinner too!

When do you eat cereal?  Is it morning, noon, night, or all of the above?
