For the Children Part 2

April 23, 2019 | by Sue Miyamoto

According to A. A. Gill “Breakfast is everything, the beginning, the first thing.  It is the mouthful that is the commitment to a new day, a continuing life.”

 Yet today, at Aunt Dot’s Place, I noticed that we only have Shredded Wheat and Wheat Flakes cereals. Don’t get me wrong – I love Shredded Wheat and eat it frequently for breakfast.

But I don’t know too many two year to eight year old kids that are passionate about Shredded Wheat. In fact, I don’t know any.

So I was wondering if anyone would like to donate some more kid friendly cereal.  I am not suggesting a truck load of highly sweetened cereal. According to Fran Lebowitz  “Breakfast cereals that come in the same colors as polyester leisure suits make over sleeping a virtue.”

Some healthy cereals with kid-appeal are Cheerios, Kix, and Rice Krispies. I still remember listening for the “snap, crackle and pop” of Rice Krispies as a child. Let’s work together to create healthy breakfast memories for our community’s kids.
