National Cereal Day
There isn’t a person alive who doesn’t know a bowl of cereal, a spoon and some milk (Lactaid, Almond, or soy milk all count!) equals a party in your mouth! Fiber, sugar, raisins, or even lucky charms – the flavors and prizes each box holds are limitless and can add to any humdrum morning. So, let’s snap, crackle and pop through all the reasons why National Cereal Day on March 7 should be in your day planner and on your menu!
NATIONAL CEREAL DAY ACTIVITIES
1.Have cereal for every meal
Be sensible and start with some Fiber One. For lunch, live a little and have more robust Lucky Charms (they are magically delicious). When dinner rolls around, go a little crazy and mix regular cornflakes with some frosted ones and follow up with a Rice Krispy treat for dessert!
2.Try a new cereal you’ve never had before
There are quite possibly over a hundred cereals to choose from and if you want to expand your breakfast horizons, why not pick one you’ve never had before like Cranberry Almond Crunch or Grape Nuts, or even Kellogg’s Honey Smacks which is nearly 56 percent sugar by weight! Good thing National Dentist Day is on March 6th to prepare for the crunchy, sugary festivities of March 7th!
3.Buy one or two cereal fun packs and hand them out
Whether it’s to co-workers, friends, or any mailmen or Jehovah’s witnesses that come to your door, hand them a small box of cereal to commemorate the occasion. If you’re more of a DIY type of person, get some zip-lock bags and fill them with a potpourri of your favorite cereal!
WHY WE LOVE NATIONAL CEREAL DAY
A. It’s not just for breakfast
Lunch, an afternoon snack, dinner, middle of a night treat, or, if you get all fancy with it, a delicious dessert. It’s one of the few foods where there’s no judgment on when you eat it. And with such a wide range of flavors and creative recipes, it’s like the mad libs ingredient that you can fill in to create an “any time of day” meal.
B. Even the worst chef can’t ruin cereal
We can’t all make Turducken (not that we all necessarily want to) but when you put together a bowl of cereal, you get the opportunity to put on a chef’s hat (especially if one is included in the box). You get to work out just the right cereal-to-milk ratio, and add fruit or nuts, feeling like the Julia Child of Cinnamon Toast Crunch — all without risking burning down your kitchen.
C. You can discover your inner breakfast mascot
Are you more of a Toucan Sam or a Captain Crunch? Do you have the same adversarial relationship with kids as Trix the Rabbit or is your outlook on life as positive as Tony the Tiger? You have so many personas you can try on every time you pour yourself a bowl to set the tone for the day.
