Do You Snack Well??

Look what I made:




Aren't they cute? They are call Sassy Sunpops. To encourage moms to turn snack time into an opportune time for good nutrition and family fun, the Kellogg Company has teamed up with family life expert Deb Geigis Berry and registered dietitian Rachel Brandeis to give moms a way to create healthier snacks for their kids while spending quality time with their kids. The initiative is called Snacktivate, and it helps moms incorporate kids into meal planning and preparation by providing healthy recipes and snack options that are as much fun to make as they are to eat.


Even if time is limited, Kellogg offers some great grab-and-go, healthy choices including classic Rice Krispies Treats® Original Squares, with four B vitamins and 90 calories each, and Nutri-Grain® cereal bars made with real fruit and whole oats can be easily packed in the game bag or stored in the car for long trips.


The wonderful people at Kelloggs sent me 2 boxes of Frosted Mini Wheats and the instructions on how to make the Sassy Sunpops. They were so easy and fun to make. I had to use 60 crushed Mini Wheats in the recipe. So of course you know that Gavin had a super fun time helping me crush those up!! And of course he loved the final outcome of the cookie:




Please head on over to the Kelloggs Snacktivate website so you can find the Sassy Sunpops recipe and even more nutritious snacks.
Thanks Kelloggs !!

Thanks for leaving a comment at my site, http://sixgoldencoins.blogspot.com/. I appreciate your feedback! Your blog seems cool too. I like your recap of your vacation. We went to Myrtle Beach two summers ago, and it's so funny that they have those Believe It or Not museums in every beach town!
BTW, I'd love to make a FAMILY cutout for you and your family sometime. It never occured to me that people would like it so much, so I thought about selling them - but I wouldn't even know where to start! Let me know if you're interested and I'd like to get your feedback about it and "talk" about it!
