We are a cereal family.  Whether for lunch or as a snack – or even as dinner sometimes – we all love to eat cereal.  The kids have their favorites, of course – sometimes they prefer it ‘dry’ with a side of milk, or actually in the bowl with milk.  All of us end up drinking the milk from the bowl when we’re done – I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t.

I’m always happy to see the kids enjoying their cereal and drinking their milk – either from the bowl or from a glass.  They do tend to have even more enthusiasm for drinking their milk when they have straws to do so with.  Sure, they love to blow bubbles through the straws, but ultimately they drink the milk down.  Might as well be fun, right? 

Did you know… that simply drinking the leftover milk from cereal bowls may help kids work towards fulfilling their body’s daily dairy, calcium, and Vitamin D needs?

What better way to slurp down to the bottom of the bowl than with the new Curvy Straws, available in specially marked boxes of Big G cereal.  These collectible Curvy Straws are connectible to each other – kids of all ages can enjoy mixing and matching to build bigger, colorful straws all while helping them work towards stronger bones and muscles through increased calcium intake.    

Right now these cool curvy straws are available in these participating Big G cereals:

  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (17 oz.)
  • Lucky Charms®(16 oz.)
  • Reese’s® Puffs (18 oz.)
  • Honey Nut Cheerios® (17 oz.)
  • Trix®(14.8 oz)
  • Cocoa Puffs® (16.5 oz)

Whether you use one or connect them all, the fun with Big G Curvy Straws doesn’t have to stop when you reach the end of the bowl. Simply grab another serving of ice cold milk, and slurp away.  Both kids have been having a blast with the curvy straws – and have requested we collect all available characters.
