Breakfast for my BEAR cubs

Breakfast does not always go smoothly I often feel I am coaxing and begging and pleading for the little cubs to eat up!  Sometimes breakfast is such a long drawn out affair you think you will be lucky to make it to school at all… I was even tempted to send them to breakfast club the other day, because although they eat well it just takes AGES!  Luckily BEAR came to the rescue sending us two boxes of their new cereal range.  We are already fans of BEAR snacks so naturally were keen to explore everything they have on offer.

BEAR Alphabites (RRP £2.69) are not only healthy but extremely good fun!  

"Stop with the pictures we want to get on with the eating!"

Children can spell out some words, enjoy the puzzles on the back of the boxes and learn some interesting facts (like the pressure on Venus would crush you like a can!) whilst munching down their breakfast!  Before you know it the bowl is empty and they are asking for second portions.

Some of the facts made the boys giggle.  I do not think they could easily go back to another cereal now; they would miss the box too much!  They did enjoy the taste too, the Cocoa Multigrain proving slightly more popular.  But this is one chocolate cereal I am happy for them to have; as it comes with no added nonsense… and actually contains one of their three daily wholegrain portions!  Adults quite like it too; I had to fend hubbie off the boxes to leave some for my boys!!!

BEAR is all about happy children so alongside the lovely cereal they sent an activity for my boys to do to make an awesome alien.  This was fabulous entertainment and very easy to do, all you need is a wooden spoon, green paint, some googly eyes, glue, some felt to cut for the ears, a pipe cleaner antennae and a pen to draw on a smile.

BEAR Alphabites are available to buy from Waitrose, Ocado, Wholefoods, Holland & Barrett, Planet Organic and lots of small chains and independents.
