Kix Cereal – One Yummy Giveaway

Giveaway Closed: Winner

I grew up in a plain cereal home – none of those chocolate covered rings or those sugary cereals that turn your bowl into a rainbow of colors. Thus? I grew up eating Cheerios and Kix.

To be honest, in the past few years, I’d forgotten all about Kix, so when MomSpark offered me the chance to do a review and giveaway, I jumped at it since I remembered just loving them as a kid!

I am happy to report that years later, I still find Kix to be yummy and their new Honey Kix? What a great change to an old favorite! SuperDad, having never had Kix, also approved (and he did grow up on colorful chocolaty cereals!)

And Mason? Well, he apparently loves Kix too! They were just perfect size for his little baby hands to pick up and gumming them to death wasn’t a problem. Best of all? I didn’t feel like I was feeding him a bunch of crap!

Since you all know that I can’t cook, we’re definitely cereal eaters at my house. I don’t have the time, patience, or know how to throw down bacon, eggs, and french toast in the morning. I forsee a LOT of bowls of cereal in Mason’s future! But, according to research, that’s not a bad thing!

“Cereal is one of the healthiest breakfast choices parents can make. Ready-to-eat cereal has fewer calories than almost any other common breakfast option, while also being nutrient-dense and convenient. In addition, cereal eaters consume less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters.”

So apparently I shouldn’t feel guilty that I have no plans to get up at 4 am and try to scramble some eggs and make french toast for Mason before school every morning, right? Instead, he’ll be eating some yummy, good for him, Kix. Good for him, you say? Yes!

“The “Kid-Tested Mother-Approved®”cereal is made with whole grain corn and is an excellent source of iron. It also is a good source of calcium, fiber, and Vitamins C and D. Original Kix has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. “

The two boxes of cereal weren’t all that came with our Kix kit. Nope, we also got an awesome take along snack container (already perfect for Mason at this age – we can store munchies for the road or even just a few servings to sit near his high chair!), a sippy cup, a super cool HUGE 24 piece floor puzzle, and some counting flash cards. My little man is too young for the super cool stuff right now, but I can’t wait until we can put the large floor puzzle together – it looks like a lot of fun!

And now, you guys can enjoy good cereal and have fun too! Why? I’m giving away two identical prize packages!

Prize pack contains:

  • 24-piece counting-themed floor puzzle
  • Fun learning-to-count flashcards
  • A sippy cup
  • A portable snack container
  • A box each of Original Kix and Honey Kix cereals.

    This mght sound weird but our morning routine is special because my husband lets me sleep in! Our daughter wakes up at 9 usually and my hubby has to get out of the door by 7:45. When she does wake up, we share a special breakfast together, just the two of us. And I’m with you – I hate to cook :P!

    Our mornings are special, like you, I hate to cook. When I finally get the cooking bug (or am forced to get it) I make a TON of pancakes, and freeze them. That way in the mornings after rushing to get myself and DS ready for the day, I can give him a warm breakfast. Milk, pancakes, and lately the silly little man has been asking for CHEESE of all things too. Gotta love kids and the memories we share.

    I love your blog, I follow, and have your button on my blog 😀

    I make our busy morning special by making sure I have some one-on-one time with the little guy to feed him every single day. So at least I never go to work without having had a few minutes of cuddles!

    Well our mornings are definately busy with 4 boys…I have 3 to get off to school in the morning. I rise about 6:30 and my oldest son is 8…so He asks to pour cereal for him and the younger 2. I know this makes him feel “responsible” so I allow him to help in the mornings. At the same time it helps out and it is one less thing that I have to do. Then I get the baby up, he eats baby cereal and bananas but Thatcher also snacks on kix and cheerios because I feel it is a healthier alternative. As this may not seem like a special morning, it definately makes my 8 year old feel like a Big helper so it is special in my heart.

    We make our busy morning routine (and is it ever busy) special by allowing the kids to eat breakfast at home, rather than at school. Rylie requested that a few months ago, and since it is important to her to eat at home, it is important to us. My husband always sits with the kids while they eat, and I try my best to if I am ready. Our mornings have become so much nicer because of that!

    Sorry…that was a little long winded for a giveaway comment. 🙂

    I learned that the Kix cereals do not contain nuts, nor do they come with allergy warnings. That is very important in our house right now. 🙂

    I always wake my girls up with music. I play silly songs on my ipod in the hall and they always wake up with a smile.

  9. Lesley M. Post author

    I lay everything out the night before and put everything in the car ahead of time so we don’t have to rush and we have a little time to talk about the upcoming day instead of rushing around.

    To make our mornings special we all eat breakfast together before going our individual ways.

    I learned that Kix was introduced to the public in 1937 and was one of the first non-flake cereals.

    My grandchildren love to help make pancakes when they stay over,as my Mom used to make them all the time!

    I make breakfast time special by writing love notes on the napkins. I don’t have time to do it every day, so it’s even more special when I do. 🙂

  18. Kimberly Post author

    I learned that Shirley Temple advertised for Kix cereal. That had to be a big deal way back then!

  19. cindy Post author

    i make sure to be there to drop the kids off at school and grandmas to say goodbye. i think it is special to bring my daughter to school. i bearely make it to work on time but i dont want to miss it.

    We are trying to get the whole family together for a prayer before we all rush out the door in different directions.

    Our morning routine is special because we always listen to music and baby boy loves music – if i don’t turn it on he points to the cd player to make his request!!

  22. kristen Post author

    my son is still young so our mornings are spent eating breakfast while watching a pbs cartoon.

  23. allie Post author

    this is really silly, but i actually learned from that there are honey flavored kix now?! omg! i love kix but had no idea and now i’m excited to try the new flavor!

    By causing the least amount of stress as possible…. mornings can be a disaster. So I prepare ahead of time so everything goes smoothly.

  25. Kenzie Post author

    I let my kids choose what to eat for breakfast. My son is very picky about what cereal goes in his bowl first.

  26. Yona Post author

    At least one laugh is mandatory for our morning routine. Jokes or recounting a funny story…it’s a good way to start the day.

    I guess the routine itself is what makes it special. Both of my kids like knowing what’s going to happen next, so doing the expected for them is the best. We wake up, I make coffee, then my oldest gets his cold cereal and the youngest gets his oatmeal. We usually talk about what we’re all planning for the day before everyone flies off to their different places for the day.

    We have to get up 5:30 so its always hectic and everyones a little grumpy but we always say bye and love you, have a good day every morning. I usually help the kids get ready by helping them find stuff, which I know they like

    As i am not a breakfast person i sit with my daughter and read her silly books to cheer her up..shes not a morning person

    Something I learned from the kix website was it was first introduced to the public in 1937.

    Our morning routine always involves cereal or fruit. I’m disabled and cereal makes for a great option for breakfast that doesn’t require much from my health.

  34. amber whitehead Post author

    I turn our favorite cartoon shoes on and I always take the ti me to snuggle up with my little one and give him a few chill out minutes before the hustle and bustle of the morning.

  35. Stephanie R Post author

    I make our morning routine special by slowing down and taking time to do fun things together like reading books and playing outside.

    With four boys, including one with Leukemia, breakfast is always crazy! During the week, I don’t really have time to make breakfast special…I just try to make sure they’re all fed before herding them off to school / chemo. On the weekend, however, we have “Pancake Sunday”. Pancakes, eggs, bacon, everything we don’t have time for during the week. Plus, that big breakfast means that it’s really brunch and I only have to make two meals that day!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    As my daughter gets older we let her help cook. She loves it! We also all act a little silly and that makes even hectic mornings seem a little smoother.


  38. Staci Jones Post author

    My kids wake up pretty early so I always let them snuggle in bed with us and we talk about all they want to do that day.
