First Cheerios

The first year of a baby’s life brings so many firsts…my son’s first word was “Papa”, his first love was Elmo, his first steps were at 10 months, and the first snack I gave to him for self-feeding was Cheerios (recommended by the nurse at my Mom and Tot group). So many firsts in that year…this is my first time to actually write it all down. And celebrate just a little.

Though my son has grown past all those first – he now has a 17 word vocabulary, he loves trucks a bit more than Elmo, he now runs rather than toddles – he still holds on to one first…Cheerios being his go-to snack.

Portable, healthy, yummy, and safe as baby’s first finger-food – Cheerios is our go to. My 12-year-old still takes dry Cheerios as her desert after dinner (she just likes the taste!).

General Mills together with Cheerios are celebrating tot’s First Cheerios across Canada. The first 1,000 participants, who share a picture on that Facebook page, of their little one First Cheerios moment will receive a coupon for a FREE box of yummy Cheerios, with a $1.00 off coupon for everyone after the first thousand who submit a photo!

PLUS you could see your baby on a box of Cheerios! Watch the shelves in Spring 2013, when we’ll be unveiling the completed mosaic on limited-edition family-sized (400g) boxes of Cheerios!


Yes, that is my little one on a Cheerios box (ok, I photoshopped it…but you could actually get YOUR child on a Cheerio box  if you take part in the mosiac…not a bad souvenir for the baby’s first memory box!)

Visit to take part in the mosaic and enter to receive your coupon for a FREE box of Cheerios.

Legal details: Limit of one (1) Free Box of Cheerios coupon per household, and one (1) $1.00 Off Coupon per household per calendar year.
