Addicted to Cheerios

Peanut is totally addicted to Cheerios. The girl can always find room for a little o in her belly even if all the other food is gone and she's giving signs that she's full.

Just the mention of the word gets her attention!

Last night, she was done flinging her pieces of broccoli off her feeding table and was fidgeting. Her mouth already crumpled into a frown and impatient little baby grunts issuing forth.

Then mama pronounced the magic words -- Would you like some Cherrios?

A ray of enthusiam glows from her now smiling and angelic face. She literally snaps her head around into the direction of the pantry where she knows Cheerios come from. A peaceful baby awaits that Cheerios will be sprinkled onto her plate.

What did parents do before Cheerios!? Was there a time before Cheerios??!! I mean what finger food is more prevelant among the 8 mos old set than these little puffs of oat? So portable. So convient. Spills are no worry - there are no stains!

And with the recommendation of four out of five pediatricians, Cheerios seem to have cemented their place in the lives of our little ones.

Cheerios helps your child develop motor skills and is a good choice for little fingers because the O's are easy to pick up, firm, and resist crumbling.

Cheerios contains 14 essential vitamins and minerals that provide good nutrition.

Cheerios cereal is made with whole grain oats and provides a good source of fiber, an important nutrient for all ages.

Cheerios has only 1 gram of sugar per serving.

Cheerios has no artificial colors or flavors.

Cheerios has been trusted by moms for over 60 years.

Cheerios cereal tastes great and is fun to eat!

Jonna loved them too as a baby. She was very poor eater (and still is) otherwise.
