Cheerios has been a part of my life since I was little and I continued to buy it for my kids. We all know by now that Cheerios are lower in sugar than most kids cereals, zero saturated fats and is a good source of fiber. When my children were little and getting used to finger foods and feeding themselves, Cheerios was one of the first foods they got. Easy for them to pick up and good for them. This is one cereal that is good for breakfast or snacks.
Do you know your cholesterol number? Most people don’t and it is important to know whether or not your cholesterol is high and what you can do to lower it naturally. Now Cheerios are whole grain and is proven to help lower cholesterol naturally. High cholesterol is manageable through a good diet of low fat, whole grain rich foods as well as exercise. Uncontrolled cholesterol is a major contributing factor of heart disease in women.
We should all get a cholesterol screening yearly but according to studies, 37% of people don’t get this screening done, especially those with limited access to healthcare. Heart health is very important and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Please get your cholesterol screening done yearly and stay up on what you can do to prevent heart disease.
If you buy the box shown in the picture above, then you can help to provide $1.00 toward providing free cholesterol screenings for women in need. This is a great opportunity to help others and eat a great cereal in the process.
