What Are Fruit Loops?

This post from Mrs. Nurse Boy reminded me of a cereal story in our home...

In our home it's considered a nearly criminal activity to feed the boys sugar for breakfast.

We do not eat sugary cereals or sugar on our cereal.

No, it's not because I'm a health nut.

It's because my boys are active enough and I ain't no fool!

Shortly after the children stayed with Mrs. W, this conversation ensued:

Dylan (6:) "Mom, when we stayed with Mrs. W she let us pick our own cereal."

Me: "I let you pick your own cereal."

Dylan (6): "No, not Cheerios or Raisin Bran. She let us pick from the grocery store!"

Kobe (3): "I had circle ones that were all different colours!"

Dylan (6): "Yeah, those circle ones were good!"

Note to self: Pat yourself on the back because your 3-year-old and 6-year-old don't know what Fruit Loops are. *wink*

I love it!! Truth be told, I am so cheap that my kids don't know the names of the cereal either. Oh, they eat it. I just buy the off brands, so they ask for "Fruity Wheels" instead!!

I am glad that such a random post could actually inspire something... anything. Simply amazing!!

My kids don't get sugar cereals either... they have enough crazies in them without a sugar high first thing in the morning! Wolf let them get fruit loops while supervising the cereal selection one grocery trip (and he has never been allowed to supervise it again) and Mummy who makes their breakfast let them have 6 loops on top of their plain boring cereal or oats. Wolf did let them have a bowl full each one morning... IT WAS INSANE!!! And it didn't wear off by lunch time, they were still coming down 24 hours later or more! I am sure if they took all those cereals off the shelf they would prescribe less ritalin and other ADHD drugs.

Sorry, rant finished, I hate the stuff, and it tastes bad to boot!
