Alphabites Healthy Breakfast Fun

My two were regularly going to breakfast club but once this delivery arrived from BEAR with two packs of their tasty Alphabites cereal they requested home breakfasts from then on!

They have made short work of the two boxes, its great seeing them so enthusiastic for breakfast.  It means they do not take quite as long to eat it.  Less of a struggle first thing is wonderful for me, nothing worse than coaxing them to eat every single mouthful whilst keeping a watchful eye on the ticking clock.  

Plus it’s very healthy with six simple ingredients in the Multigrain variety, wheat, oats, corn, rice, barley and coconut nectar.  The last ingredient is packed with minerals that assist with mental development; help bones and muscles grow and give our immune system a boost!  I think the last one is especially important now the cold and flu season is upon us!  I am pleased I know exactly what my children are eating and they go off to school in high spirits but minus the difficult sugar rush…

To celebrate the fact there are no hidden monsters in Alphabites ingredients they have added magnets instead!  The magnets are amusing with interesting letter shaped monsters on each one.  Your own little monsters can get their claws on 4 free Monsterbet magnets inside every box.  But if I am honest my two do not need any extra motivation to get chomping up their Alphabites the magnets are just a very welcome extra that they like collecting.

Alphabites are available in both Multigrain and Cocoa Multigrain varieties and have an RRP of £2.69.  We will be stocking up whilst the special monster magnet promotion is on, it’s a great way to encourage your children to have some fun with letters and practise their spelling.  But most of all I am just happy my boys are having a decent start to their day and plenty of calcium to keep growing!

BEAR also have a special competition running at the moment you can download a template from the website and create your own monster with the chance to win some lovely prizes.  We were sent some craft supplies so my boys could give it a go but they got a little carried away and just glued on every bit of card, feather and tissue paper to their entry then covered generously with glitter!  They enjoyed the process anyway...
