General Mills ~ Lucky Charms Review


I can remember eating Lucky Charms as a child. I had a game I played as I ate. Since my mom made it clear that I had to eat more than just the marshmallows, I made it a personal goal to include one marshmallow with every spoon full of cereal. I have fond memories of this cereal along with other cereals from General Mills.

In fact, thanks to this campaign, my son was able to enjoy his first bowl of Lucky Charms.

General Mills wants to spread the word about the importance of why they make sure their cereal provides Vitamin D. 

  • Are you aware of the recommended amount of calcium and vitamin D your child should get each day? Better yet, did you know the American Academy of Pediatrics recently doubled the vitamin D recommendation for children? Approximately 75% of kids today don’t get the recommended levels of calcium and vitamin D -- two key nutrients for bone growth.

  • Not to worry though — as a parent, you can easily help your child get more of these two nutrients by looking for calcium and vitamin D fortified cereals, milk and juice. All General Mills Big G kid cereals (including Kix, Lucky Charms, Trix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and more) offer a good source of BOTH calcium and vitamin D in each serving.

  • Additionally, a recent report in a leading consumer magazine ranked kid cereals by nutritional content, and all nine General Mills Big G kid cereals included in the report were ranked in the top half. All Big G kid cereals have at least eight grams of whole grain per serving (at least 48 grams are recommended daily), and all have 12 grams or less of sugar per serving.

  • Cereal is one of the most nutritious breakfast options a kid can eat. Most cereals have about 100 – 130 calories per serving and provide at least 10 key nutrients. And, ready-to-eat cereal is the number one source of whole grain in American diets.

    I'm happy to see my son enjoy his box of cereal. Perhaps someday I'll see him make up his own rules for eating his cereal. 
    Thank you to the Mom Bloggers Club and General Mills for the opportunity to share this information with my readers.



  1. That's right, don't eat all the marshmallows first and then leave all the uneaten cereal in the bowl!
    Ah to be a mom.

  2. I haven't had Lucky Charms in a long time but I used to leave all the marshmallows for last. Ahhh, memories.

  3. I used to eat the cereal first and save the marshmallows too!! Save the best for last!

  4. I always had to have one of every marshmallow left at the end so I could have a bite with all the marshmallows! There are too many different marshmallows now to do that. But I still love eating Lucky Charms.


I am so happy you stopped by today. What is on your mind?
