On the Run with Kellogg's (+ $100 Giftcard Giveaway!)


I’m a mom of four.  And I’m waist deep in my busy season.
Truthfully every season is a busy season.  But I feel the biggest crunch during football season and baseball season, with baseball season squeezing my calendar the tightest.  Between practices and at least two games a week, times 2 boys, plus gymnastics four days a week, my head is in a permanent spin.  I can’t function without my planner and I can’t even think past a week in advance. 
With all the running, we’re eating many dinners on the go, and we’re packing dozens of snacks.  I have had many mornings that I served breakfast in a cup on the way to gymnastics or dinner on the way to a game.  A cup is perfect because it doesn't spill the food, and my kids can hold it easily.  I've squeezed ketchup in the bottom and added nuggets, I've poured syrup in the bottom and folded in waffles.  I've served butter noodles, cut up meatballs and oatmeal all in a cup.  And of course, I can’t forget my most convenient disposable cup snack: dry cereal.
A disposable cup is the easiest method of on-the-go snacking.  I've lived it firsthand.  Bowls are so over-rated.
Kellogg's must have read my mommy mind, because they now sell Cereal In A Cup.  While it’s easy to pour cereal in a cup and go, these pre-packaged cereal cups make life even easier on all us moms.  It’s as easy as grabbing one and tossing it into your purse; no spilling or worries about zip close baggies.  They are even perfect for the athletic bags and camp lunches.  These little beauties are the perfect snack for just about any time of day or night.
This summer, when my schedule is a little less hectic, I’ll still be loving Cereal In A Cup.  I’m a “bring your own and save money” mom, so car rides and lake trips involve packing our own snacks and drinks.  Kellogg's has my back on this one, because one Cereal In A Cup four pack feeds my four munchkins.  They each get one, and we are on our way. 
Every trip to the grocery store involves finding quick and easy snacks for my kids that aren't complete garbage.  Cereal In A Cup is now a must-have, because my kids love it and it's convenient.  I'm a sucker for convenience. I'm sucker for these faces too.
