Van’s Cereals – Not Just For Breakfast !

Van’s Cereals- Not Just For Breakfast !

I love to eat healthy. And…I try hard to pass the healthy eating bug along to all members of my family. Sometimes, it’s hard to do, especially when have so many yummy sounding snacks out therein the foodie world. It’s a good thing that we have wonderful food companies out there like Van’s to keep a look out, though!

Van’s has a huge variety of delicious foods that are out for families like yours and mine to enjoy. Right now, they have added two new cereals that are hitting the shelves.


Did You Know ??

Contrary to popular (and my own) beliefs, cereals are not for breakfast. They can make some pretty delicious snacks,too! Both Blissfully Berry and Cocoa Sensation cereal  are great with milk or yogurt, but add a tasty twist in easy recipes like Crunch Chocolate-Banana Sweet-n-Salty Snack Mix and PB & Berry Blast Snack Mix (recipes below).  Each serving of cereal brings 17 grams of whole grains and 5 grams of fiber — all without artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup, egg, dairy or corn.
