Here’s the problem: I have a wonderful antique Kellogg’s cereal rack. It’s a great piece and has great sentimental value (it’s the first gift my husband ever gave me). It hangs on the wall in the breakfast nook, and I have always kept it filled with cereal. (The cereal was possibly stale – but the Kellogg labels looked great!!)
Fast forward to NINE grand-kids. I would buy the variety pack of Kelloggs which included such (relatively) healthy choices as Corn Flakes, Special K and Raisin Bran. Also included … Fruit Loops and Cocoa Krispies. If you have kids around, you can guess how this story goes.
I just couldn’t find enough recipes to use up the leftover “good” cereal…..Plus…I thought it might be a good idea to see if I could find a healthy alternative.
Don’t judge…it works!!! We re-use most of the boxes and the kids are always happy to help fill the bags. They have even helped make up new kinds of cereals!!
Here is a template if you have an urge to do this yourself.
I use boxes ordered from U-Line (one of my favorite places to shop….again…no judging). The boxes are 3 x 3 x 4.
