Disclosure: I have been compensated for this post by Cheerios, however all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
What are your recipes and favorite ways to snack on Cheerios? I love the versatility of the original “Yellow Box” Cheerios in recipes, but also have to admit it’s one of my favorite things to snack on which I included in my Patriotic Snack Mix recipe below. A second close favorite of mine is Honey Nut Cheerios, which gives just enough sweetness to satisfy that sugar craving without giving in to junk food cravings. Right now, #GetOneGiveOne with #Cheerios! Just buy a box at Walmart and give one to someone for FREE #WithLove! Head over here to read more about how you can donate a box a Cheerios with your purchase.
As you can see, I am not the only one who loves snacking on Cheerios! We had a great time at my church’s Patch the Pirate ministry snacking while we made cards for the Edmond Road Baptist Church Food Pantry! It was a wonderful way to show kids how to pay it forward. Of course we all noticed on the boxes of #Cheerios the great #GetOneGiveOne promotion with #Walmart. We love Cheerios for church snacks since they are gluten-free. With lots of food allergies and gluten intolerances out there, its nice not to worry about handing out a snack some kiddos may not be able to eat!
We had some great artists making cards, and everyone took the assignment seriously and did their best! If you are considering donating to a food pantry, keep in mind that Original Yellow Box Cheerios or Honey Nut make a perfect idea to include. We love that #Cheerios are heart healthy, gluten free, and not full of sugar as many cereals are. The family size box is a great buy, since as we all know this cereal can go pretty fast!
I want to thank all of our Patch the Pirate kids for participating in this activity to promote the food pantry and help brighten someone’s day! We had a great time and enjoyed lots of Cheerios along the way. Next time you’re purchasing Cheerios, remember your local food pantry and be inspired to make a difference!
