Reducing waste by reducing packaging

Cereal again.

Here I go again on this cereal issue. I keep looking at options for reduced-packaging cereal. Just across the border at a Cost Cutters they were selling Malt-O-Meal Cereals for $2. Our oldest boy didn’t like the taste of the Honey Nut O’s though and kept saying how he prefered Honey Nut Cheerios.  At our local Wal-Mart a brand that claims to be “all natural” was only $3. Unfortunately the type I bought has sugar as the first ingredient. Both of the kids didn’t like that cereal and it ended up in the green cone. That’s what happens when I don’t read the ingredients! For only $7.99 at Root’s I was able to buy a large bag of EnviroKidz Gorilla Munch. That’s a pretty good price and it only has three ingredients (and the first one isn’t sugar). It won’t be an everyday cereal for the kids because it does have some sugar in it. I still wish Cheerios came in a bag-only option because everyone in the family loves it and it’s a healthy choice. We only have Shreddies or granola as bulk bin options in my town and that won’t cut it. Maybe I need to send an e-mail to Jim Patterson. He probably has a little pull when it comes to stocking his Save on Foods shelves and bulk bins. Hmmm. Something to think of. As I am off to bed in a few minutes, I am afraid I might just dream about bulk Cheerios.

What’s your favorite cereal? Mine, right now, include Shredded Wheat Biscuits, Kashi Go-Lean and of course Cheerios.
