When I was a child, I never celebrated Children’s Day. It is a traditional holiday that I didn’t know existed. But now that I know about it, I think the concept of Children’s Day is wonderful. The holiday is celebrated on various days each year all around the world for different reasons but all child-related.
Whether it’s for Save the Children foundation or to recognize the needs or rights of children, it’s a great way to protect the future of the world. For instance, Children’s Day or El Dia del Niños is celebrated on April 30th in México. It’s a day where they can wear shorts or a colored shirt or have a day off of school. In other countries, the day is celebrated on other days as well.
Since I never celebrated Children’s Day as a child, I think I can take the pledge in making every day Children’s Day for the sake of my children. As a mother of three children, I believe it’s my duty to make sure my children are safe, healthy, protected and eat a well-balanced meal.
Kellogg’s understands the value of breakfast because as we all know; it’s the most important meal of the day. My kids are starving when they wake up so it’s important for me to have cereals in my pantry for a quick and easy meal. It’s perfect for the mornings when I don’t feel like making a huge breakfast, which is often at my house.
Cereal is a popular breakfast in the United States. In fact, 82 percent of women and 79 percent of men in the U.S. start their day with a cereal breakfast.
A study of 467 U.S. school children found higher intakes of vitamins A and E, iron, and B vitamins in those who consumed breakfast than in those who skipped the meal. The breakfast skippers – 16 percent of the children in the study – were less likely to achieve even two-thirds of their recommended daily intake for vitamins and minerals.
I’m ecstatic that Kellogg’s is having a promotion that is giving us moms and dads an opportunity to celebrate Children’s day/ El Dia del Niños with a FREE trip to the movies.
Here’s how Kellogg’s is making it easy for us to plan that free movie day:
- Buy any three Kellogg cereals (8.7 oz or larger) or EGGO Waffles (6 count or larger) and receive a free kids movie pass (up to $7.50 value) with mail-in official order form.
- The order form can be found on special packages of Frosted Flakes and Cocoa Krispies. Tear Pads are also available in the cereal aisle or from an EGGO freezer cling.
