New Sesame Street Cereal from Post #Giveaway

Disclaimer: I received this product to review. All opinions are my own.

Toddlers are a fun group. Little kids are doing so many new things and are learning so much. It's fun to see all the changes that they go through. What do you think of with toddlers? Learning to eat. Walking. Self feeding. Cute children's shows and cartoons. Now here's a product that toddlers will love. It encourages self feeding and has some of their favorite characters.

The product: Post has launched a new cereal with toddlers in mind. It is Sesame Street Cereal with their favorite characters on the box. And the cereal inside is perfect for little hands. Reach a new milestone with your little ones with a cereal they will love.

Post Sesame Street Cereal comes in two varieties, A is for Apple and B is for Banana. For your growing child this cereal is made with 2/3 of their daily whole grain serving plus it has only 1 gram of sugar per serving. Cookie Monster and Elmo are featured on the boxes of this cereal. The cereal itself is in the shape of little X's and O's. It makes picking it up easy for little fingers. And it is soft and melts in your mouth for easy and safe consumption for your little ones.

What we thought: On first site, I know my son would have loved these cereals when he was a toddler. Having Elmo & Cookie Monster on the box will thrill any young Sesame Street fan. Not only are the boxes catchy with favorite characters, but the cereal is pretty good. It has a slight hint of the flavor in the little pieces. It reminds me of Cheerios with a hint of apple/banana flavor. The texture is great for little ones. It is a soft cereal that they can easily chew and swallow. I think these cereals are great for any families with young children. They will definitely enjoy trying this. I will be getting some more when Jonah is big enough to try it too.

Where to buy: You can find the new Post Sesame Street Cereal in your local grocery stores now.

Prize: One of you will win one of each box, A is for Apple and B is for Banana, of Post Sesame Street Cereal.

Giveaway: This giveaway is open until 6/28/13 at 12:01am EST. It is open to US residents only. Please enter in the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!

Kroger June Value

Disclosure: The information and gift pack have been provided by General Mills and Kroger through MyBlogSpark.

Summertime is here. School is out and hungry kids are home. It's time to stock up on your favorite brands from Kroger.

The product: Kroger is a great store to shop at. They always have great deals on your favorite products from the best brands. You can often find great savings on your favorite brands from General Mills like Pillsbury, Totino's, Chex Mix and Yoplait.

What we thought: We don't have a Kroger in town, but often stop to shop in one when we're away from home. There are a few within driving distance in neighboring towns. When there are great deals, I love to make the trip just to shop there. This last time we found one of my husband's favorites, Ale-8-One pop (link not sponsored, just a product we love). We can't get there here, but when we were near Cincinnati last month we were able to get it. He is all stocked up for a while now thanks to Kroger and the $25 gift card I received.

How to connect: You'll find Kroger on Facebook and Twitter.

Prize: One reader will win a $25 Kroger gift card.

Giveaway: This giveaway is open until 12:01am EST on 6/21/13. It is open to US residents only. Please enter in the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!

Life & Review Blogging

I am getting back into the swing of things. Life has finally settled down again. My newborn baby isn't such a newborn as he is an infant now. It's amazing how quickly they grow and change.

Jonah is 2 months old. He's the sweetest little guy. He is eating less frequently, sleeping better and more interactive now. He loves to smile and laugh at us and is a joy in our house.

Now that I'm not always tied down with a baby, I will be able to catch up on blogging. I have the itch to get back to it. We were on vacation last week, so now that we're back I'm ready to get going.

Be on the lookout for more blog posts, product reviews, and of course, great giveaways too. I have some planned to post soon, and you won't want to miss it.
