Kellogg's Disclosure
Kellogg's Low Fat Granola With Raisins

Usually you hear the phrase “21 Days To A Better Me”, but I decided to change it up a little. I decided we are going to have 21 Days To A Better Us, because it’s not just going to be a me thing, it’s going to be a change for my whole family. They say it takes twenty-one days to form a habit, so for my family that is going to be eating healthier. For myself and my husband it’s a little easier, we aren’t that picky. For my kids, it means finding something they like, or finding a way to get them to like something new

For me, what I start my day off eating (good or not so good choices) seem to play a big part in how I feel the rest of the day. So, as part of our “21 Days To A Better Us” journey, I have decided to incorporate Kellogg’s Low Fat Granola with Raisins cereal into my daily life. It’s a tasty way to start the day! And definitely much better for me, than my past choices, which shall remain nameless.

Low Fat Granola Cereal

For my kids, it gets a little more tricky adding a new food into their lives. They have the things they like, and usually anything else is off limits. I can’t blame them, I was the same way when I was a kid, but I want them to make better choices earlier in life. So to make it fun, we add texture to their favorite yogurts. You can simply add the Kellogg’s Low Fat Granola with Raisins, right to the top and mix in to your favorite greek yogurt, like we have:

Greek Yogurt With Granola

Visual appeal is quite a big thing with my kids, so making fun layers seems to make it taste better. My daughter loves it that way in her blueberry yogurt:

Layered yogurt

For the picky ones, there is just something about the crunch texture added to their yogurt that makes them forget they are eating something different. They are getting almonds, whole grain oats, raisins, things they would normally turn up their nose at. Along with picking healthier breakfasts and snacks, we are also making a point to drink more water and get outside daily, even if just for a few minutes. Over the next 21 days I am excited to see the new, healthier habits we form. Especially when they are healthy habits that are tasty!

    This looks so good. I try and feed my kids healthy stuff in the mornings and they would gobble this up.

    I struggle with personal goals because I never seem to meet them. I just want to eat more fruit and veggies. I am so high carbs it’s not funny.

    This sounds like a great way to start a healthy habit. I think I will give it a try and I think I will start my grandchildren on it too.

    I’m in the middle of a 21 day experience — avoiding sugars. :) It’s hard at first, but once you can get past day 7, life is good!

    I love your bowl so cute and I’m a huge cereal eater, if we had milk I would eat some now for dinner.

    One thing I like about granola is that it actually sticks with me. I run a lot, and if I eat just regular cereal I burn it off in an hour and am starving. But granola is much heartier.

    I really don’t get into cereal that much, but the granola cereal sounds really good!

    Granola is so yummy on yogurt! I also love it as a cereal. So filling due to all the yummy ingredients. Good luck with your 21 day’s, you can do it!

    Sounds like a yummy new habit! While I was eating yogurt with granola for dinner tonight my son happened to mention he was scared to try it, so I am going to be encouraging him to try it, too.

    I’m hoping to eat healthier (but I have such a bad track record for that one,) and make better choices when we eat out (that’s my BIGGEST problem!)
